Bengaluru FC have announced the signing of 29-year-old Jamaican forward Deshorn Brown on a deal for a year and a half culminating in May of 2021.

The defending champions have dipped their toes in the January window after the foreign striker they signed before the start of the 2019-20 ISL season Manuel Onwu did not manage to find the back of the net in the three appearances he has made for the club.

The versatile Brown can play as a centre-forward and can be deployed on the wings as well. He started his professional career with Des Moines Menace in the United Soccer League. Deshorn went on to play for clubs in the Major League Soccer (MLS), Eliteserien (Norwegian league), China League One (second tier) and La Liga 2 with Lorca FC.

Deshorn has scored 70 goals and assisted 16 in 199 games for clubs across three continents. He has also represented the Jamaican National Team.

Playing in different countries is always a challenge mentally. Culturally, I love the game, and wherever it takes me. I’m excited to experience a new culture, and ready for the new challenge that comes with it

We had the option of signing a seventh foreign player and we felt now was a good time to exercise it.

Deshorn lends us more options in attack and even though he joins us in the middle of the season, we believe he will play his part in helping the team achieve its goal.
