Two-time Indian Super League champions ATK have announced the signing of Joby Justin on a free transfer from East Bengal FC. The forward has been signed on a three-year deal and will join the club at the start of next season.
Joby who hails from Trivandrum, Kerala has been a key component in East Bengal’s second-placed finish in the I-League this season. With nine goals, the forward is the third highest scorer in the league.
As a kid, Joby played on the beaches of Vettucaud and his first big break was when he signed for the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) team. He went on to represent Kerala in the Santosh Trophy and his performances caught the eye of East Bengal FC who signed him in July 2017.
ATK have also extended the contracts of Manuel Lanzarote, Edu Garcia and John Johnson for another season.
