The 27-year-old Mumbai City FC defender Joyner Lourenco has signed a two-year deal with Jamshedpur FC. The Red Miners have been strengthening their defence ahead of next season. They recently signed the fullback Keegan Pereira and extended Tiri’s contract.
Joyner made 10 appearances for Mumbai City FC who finished third in the ISL this season and lost in the play-offs to FC Goa. Hailing from Goa, Joyner played a number of seasons in the I-League with Sporting Club de Goa before moving to Bengaluru FC in the 2017-18 season.
Although he never made a league appearance for the current ISL champions, he featured for them in the 2018 AFC Cup. Much like the signing of Keegan Pereira, Joyner Lourenco brings solidity and experience to the Jamshedpur back line.
It’s a great feeling because not every player has the opportunity to join a huge club like this. I am looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and I am very proud to officially become a Jamshedpur FC player.
I really enjoyed the crowd presence at The Furnace last season when I came with Mumbai City and I am looking forward to playing in front of the home fans. I hope along with the team we can make our fans extremely proud and happy.
Jam ke khelo Jamshedpur!Joyner Lourenco
