right-back Reagan Singh has signed a new Chennaiyin FC contract that will keep
him with the two-time Indian Super League champions till 2023.
A tough and resilient
presence on the right wing, CFC fans will be overjoyed following Reagan’s retention.
The 30-year-old had joined CFC from NorthEast United ahead of the 2020-21
season in Goa.
“First of all I would
like to thank the Chennaiyin family for believing in me. I feel proud to be
part of one of the most successful teams in the country. I believe I
contributed well and improved as a player in my first season. My ambition now
is to help the club lift their third ISL trophy, and the first of my career. I
will work hard and keep improving, and I would also like to thank all our
supporters for their unconditional support,” said an excited Reagan after
putting pen to paper on a new deal.
“Reagan represents the
strength and toughness in our squad. Having joined us with a wealth of ISL
experience already, he improved our defensive ranks last season, while also
proving to be a threat in the offensive areas. A solid team player, we are
absolutely delighted to extend Reagan's stay with CFC. This is a reward for his
consistent positive performances, and long may they continue. Also, being a
senior player, Reagan is yet another leader of our troops,” said CFC co-owner
Vita Dani, as Reagan joins youngster Rahim Ali and Tamil Nadu fan-favourite
Edwin Vanspaul, who also extended their stay with Chennaiyin recently.
Hailing from Manipur,
Reagan began his professional career at Royal Wahingdoh in the I-League in
2012. After three years at the Shillong club, he signed for NorthEast United
FC, where he spent five years, garnering solid ISL experience. Known for his
composure in defence and bombing runs while going forward, Reagan proved to be
a reliable outlet for CFC in the 2020-21 campaign. He helped Chennaiyin keep
six clean sheets in his 18 games last season, also notching one assist while
coming close on multiple occasions to scoring.
