Indian Super League outfit Delhi Dynamos has signed India U-19 stars Kishan Singh Thongam and Jayananda Singh Moirangthem ahead of the start of the ISL Season 4. The defensive duo is currently on international duty at the ongoing SAFF U-18 Championships in Bhutan and will join the team next month.

18-year old Jayananda has previously plied his trade with the AIFF Academy, DSK Shivajians and has also led the India U-14 and U-16 sides. The versatile defender who can play either as a centre back or as a full back was part of the Indian side that won the U-16 SAFF Championships.

Joining Jayananda at the capital based side will be his teammate Kishan, who has moved steadily through the ranks. The 18-year old left back has represented the India U-14, U-15, U-16 and was also part of the side that won the U-16 SAFF Championships.

“I’d like to extend my warmest greetings to Jayananda and Kishan, these two players have a lot of potential and I’m happy they have chosen Delhi Dynamos to be their new club. We hope we can help Jayananda and Kishan grow and develop into the next Indian superstars,” Delhi Dynamos Director, Rohan Sharma said.
