ISL Winter Transfers Roundup

The winter transfer window is over and the Indian Super League (ISL) has reached its business end as the teams enter the final stretch of 4-5 games.

Mumbai City FC are leading the charts after 15 matches with 33 points followed by new entrants ATK Mohun Bagan. The Mariners’ rivals East Bengal who too have joined the league this season are struggling at the bottom half of the league table. 

Every single team in ISL have been involved in player transactions in this window with East Bengal being active the most in the transfer market. They have released as many as nine players and have signed four.

The league leaders have signed just one player, Jackichand Singh from Jamshedpur as Farukh Choudhary went the other way.
