The 18-year-old Indian Arrows defender Narender Gahlot has signed a three-year deal with the ISL club, Jamshedpur FC.
A product of the Chandigarh Football Academy, Gahlot was part of the Indian U-17 National Team which participated in the FIFA U-17 World Cup held in India in 2017. His performances earned him a call up to to the AIFF developmental team, the Indian Arrows in 2018.
The teenager was recently called up by the Indian National Team coach, Igor Stimac, to be part of the 35-man preliminary India squad for the upcoming Hero Intercontinental Cup 2019.
When this opportunity came towards me, I did not wait long to say yes to it.
I am thankful to the management for giving a young player like me the chance to showcase my talents at the biggest stage in Indian Football.
I want to visit Jamshedpur soon and make sure the fans are very proud of me.
