The Indian Super League (ISL) side Jamshedpur FC have finalised deal to sign the 27-year old defender as we have been told by our sources.

The 27-year old Lourenco who played for Mumbai city FC this season, flourished as left-back in a back four system under Jorge Costa. He played along with the likes of Lucian Goian, Anwar Ali and Souvik Chakrabarti in a back-four system.

Lourenco who made his professional debut back in 2011 for Sporting Clube de Goa in a League match against Pune FC has spent most of his career in Sporting Goa outfit before moving onto Bengaluru FC in 2017. He didn’t have a great time there and Bengaluru FC eventually released him back in June 2018.

Mumbai City FC signed him in October 2018 where he played a vital part in Mumbai City FC’s solid defence. He went onto make 10 appearances for the club in ISL this season.

Jamshedpur had a disappointing campaign in the ISL, finishing in fifth position for the second consecutive season in the league. It has to be seen how much difference the 27-year old Goan Defender Lourenco would make to the Jamshedpur team.
