Mumbai City FC have brought onboard Australian midfielder Bradden Inman who was with ATK Mohun Bagan last season. The 29-year-old midfielder has signed a one-year contract with MCFC.
Born in Adelaide, Inman was scouted by Newcastle United during a tour of Australia and the midfielder moved Tyneside at the age of 15. He made his reserve team debut in 2008 against Sheffield United FC. Although named on the bench on a couple of occasions in the Premier League, the midfielder did not make an appearance for the senior side and instead played in the Premier Reserve League.
After rejecting a fresh contract offered by the Magpies, Brad joined English third-tier League One side Crewe Alexandra on loan in the 2012-13 season and made the deal permanent with the club the season after. After four seasons at the club, Inman moved to League One sides Peterborough United and Rochdale AFC for a few years before moving Down Under to Brisbane Roar in 2019. He scored four goals and assisted six from 24 matches at Brisbane before switching over to ISL side ATK Mohun Bagan last season.
In the ISL 2020-21, Bradden made a total of 13 appearances out of which seven were with ATKMB during the first half of the season and six were with Odisha FC (1 goal, 2 assists) out on loan in January 2021. Inman also went out on loan to A-League side Western United after the ISL season ended and featured in five matches.
Overall, Brad has made 308 appearances across all competitions at club level and has scored 54 goals and assisted 44. He has also represented Scotland NT at youth levels.
Very peculiar signing. Can and will definitely do better than he did at ATKMB and OFC.
Thrives between the lines and is great with through balls.
Has had plenty of experience in the English third division, will be looking to vindicate himself here.Shlok
