East Bengal FC have wrapped up a deal for 25-year-old Spanish forward Juan Mera González from Segunda División B club SD Leioa for the upcoming season.
Juan primarily plays as a second striker, but can also do a job on the wings. He was part of the youth team at Sporting Gijón in 2010 before making the switch to the B team for the 2010-11 season. González would feature more prominently in his next four seasons at the club before moving over to Celta Vigo B who also compete in the third tier – the Segunda División B.
After a season (2016-17) at Celta, Juan featured briefly for Racing Ferrol, CD Teruel and SD Leioa – from where he joins I-League side East Bengal FC. He has played all of his career in the third tier of the Spanish league and his 178 appearances have yielded 22 goals.
