Odisha FC announced the departure of their goalkeeper Arshdeep Singh on Tuesday.

The custodian left the club after three seasons since his transfer in the 2019-20 season from Minerva Punjab.

Singh was an instant hit in the Indian Super League. Despite making just eight appearances for Odisha FC in his first season in the ISL, he made a decent impact in his first season.

In the 2020-21 season, Singh climbed up the ranks and played 16 matches in the season, eventually becoming Odisha FC's number one goalkeeper and continued to lead his team in the 2021-22 Indian Super League season before suffering an injury.

Arshdeep has made 116 saves in his ISL career so far, averaging 3.5 saves per match. He has an incredible save percentage of 65.53.

“I’ve been at the club for three years. It’s been a great journey with Odisha FC. It’s been my family and it’s never a nice feeling to leave your family. But sometimes you have to do what is best for you and the club. Maybe some day, I will be back here again,” an emotional Arshdeep in his farewell video with the club. 

In Arshdeep's absence, Kamaljit Singh will now lead from the back at Odisha FC's goalkeeping custodian.
