Ajay, 21, is a defensive midfielder, who joined Bengaluru FC academy back in 2016, before being called up to the senior team during the 2018-19 season. The Manipur-born footballer made his ISL debut against Chennaiyin FC as BFC went on to win the title in the 2018-19 season.

Coming through the ranks with Bengaluru FC B, he was part of the team that won the Bangalore Super Division two times in a row.

Ajay, who will be available for selection against Kerala Blasters FC on Friday, also had a brief loan spell at Hyderabad FC last season.

 “I am delighted to join SC East Bengal. Every player wants to play for a big club like this and I am eager to take the field wearing the hallowed red and gold colours. I would also like to thank Bengaluru FC from where I started my journey.

“To all the SC East Bengal fans, I will try my level best to make you happy every time I play. I have been getting so many messages from all of you. The love you all have shown is overwhelming,” he added.

“We are happy to have Ajay with us. He is a talented young footballer who has been impressive and is always hungry to learn,” SC East Bengal head coach and Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler said.
