FC Goa have signed NEUFC defender Dylan Fox after meeting the transfer fee clause in the contract of the Australian centre-back.

As per TOI, according to the contract, if Fox chose to play for a club in India, he’d have to pay NEUFC a fee of $40,000. There was some friction between the player and Northeast United leading up to FCG’s offer. FC Goa met the transfer fee after agreeing personal terms with the 27-year-old defender.

The Northern Ireland-born defender started his youth career with New South Wales-based Sutherland Sharks FC and transitioned to the first team in 2013. A few months later, Fox joined another NSW club Bonnyrigg White Eagles.

In 2015, Dylan switched to A-League side Wellington Phoenix and spent four seasons at the club in the A-League before terminating his contract due to lack of playing time. He went on to join Korean second-tier club FC Anyang in 2019. During his time with the ‘Nix, he picked up Players’ Player of the Year accolade and was runner-up to Roy Krishna for the club’s Player of the Year award in the 2017-18 season.

Post his stint with FC Anyang, Fox moved to Central Coast Mariners for the 2019-20 season following which he joined Northeast United FC ahead of the 2020-21 ISL. The 6′ 1″ defender was instrumental in NEUFC’s playoff run last season and made 21 appearances out of a possible 22 in the ISL.
