Mumbai, March 12 (IANS) Goalkeeper Amrinder Singh has signed a new three-year deal with Mumbai City FC, committing his future with the Indian Super League (ISL) franchise until May 2021.

Amrinder has consistently been a standout performer for Mumbai City FC and has established his spot as one of the top goalkeepers of the country.

The 24-year-old joined Mumbai City FC for the 2016 season of the ISL, initially on loan from Bengaluru FC. After joining in the second half of the season, Amrinder featured for Alexandre Guimaraes’ side six times, conceding just thrice and winning the Golden Glove award in the process.
