Kingfisher East Bengal club are in talks with a Swedish defender for I League.
Kingfisher East Bengal club are in talks with a Swedish defender for I League. The club is likely to release their British signing Callum Angus. The former Dempo footballer’s unimpressive show in the Calcutta Football League might get him the axe.
According to the club’s football secretary Santosh Bhattacharya, “Most likely we will be releasing Callum Angus ahead of I League. We are in the lookout of a central defender. Our coach Trevor Morgan is in talks with quite a few players.”
Angus was brought by the club on the suggestion of Coach Trevor James Morgan. Morgan was the coach of Dempo when Angus last played for the Goan outfit.
The Swedish defender has quite an impressive bio-data. 19 years old Linus Wahlqvist has already played for the Swedish national team. The 6 ft. tall central defender has already played for U’17, U’19 & U’21 teams for Sweden. His made his international debut against Finland on January 10, 2016.
According to club sources, Linus has mailed his CV to the club along with his video footage. Last year East Bengal was in talks with Iain Hume, Antonio German and Leo Moura, but none of them donned the Red and Gold colours.
