The 29-year-old is looking to make a mark in the ISL, admitting that a few clubs have already contacted him regarding his services.

"I was quietly confident, but never thought that I would become the best goalkeeper in the I-League. My confidence increased as I kept playing more matches. I wanted to prove myself because I didn’t get much game time in the past few seasons," he said in an interview with Sportskeeda.

"I aspire to play in the ISL. I’m confident that I can cement my spot in the playing XI. I’ve seen the performances of goalkeepers in the ISL and I believe that I’m just as good as them, if not better," the shot stopper added.
