Chennaiyin FC have wrapped up the signing of East Bengal FC midfielder Sourav Das on a two-year contract. The 25-year-old made 18 appearances for the Red & Gold Brigade in the 2021-22 ISL.

A product of the famed Tata Football Academy, Das signed his first professional contract with Mohun Bagan AC in 2016 and represented them in the I-League and the Calcutta Football League. He won the Calcutta Premier Division with the Mariners in 2018-19.

Then in 2019, Sourav moved to the ISL with Mumbai City FC and spent nearly two seasons with the club before joining East Bengal FC in the January transfer window of the 2020-21 season. Overall in three seasons in the ISL, Sourav has featured in 29 matches. He was part of the Mumbai City FC squad that completed the double (League+Championship) in the 2020-21 ISL.

With Anirudh Thapa a steady presence in midfield at CFC, the arrival of Emerging Player of the I-League 2021-22 Jiteshwor Singh and now Sourav Das’s signing – the club’s midfield looks well-manned for the new season.
