Ahead of the January transfer window, Kerala Blasters pulled off an interesting swap deal…
Two teams who have had two completely different kinds of seasons so far, engaged in a transfer deal that saw players swapping shirts ahead of the January transfer window in the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL).
ATK Mohun Bagan are at the top of the league table with 17 points from eight matches and have only lost one game. Kerala Blasters, on the other hand, recently ended their winless run and are ninth with seven points. And these two teams exchanged players with more than half of the season left to be played.
Kerala Blasters allowed Indian winger Nongdamba Naorem, who is only 20 years old, to join ATK Mohun Bagan on loan until the end of the season. Although it is a loan deal, there is a catch. Noarem, who started three matches this season for the Yellows after spending the previous season on loan at Bagan, is in the final year of his contract.
