Ahead of the draft, Northeast United FC decided to retain midfielder, Rowllin Borges and 24-year-old goalkeeper, TP Rehenesh.
NEUFC made their entry into the domestic draft from Round 3. The first player they signed was India winger Holicharan Narzary who will pocket home a cool Rs 45 Lakh. They returned once again in round 4 and swooped in on former East Bengal and Mohun Bagan defender, Nirmal Chettri, picking him up for a reasonable Rs 35 Lakh.
The Highlanders went big in round 5 by acquiring the services of local boy Lalrindika Ralte. The attacking midfielder was picked up for Rs 50 Lakh. An overview suggests that North East have a set of competitive players in their team, more than capable of merely challenging. It remains to be seen how they shape up eventually. Here is the latest squad list for NEUFC
