Former Aberdeen striker, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas could reportedly make a move to India and participate in the Indian Super League (ISL) with the Scottish Daily Express claiming that he is a target for current league champions, Jamshedpur FC.

New Jamshedpur coach Andy Boothroyd is considering a move for the former Arsenal youngster who has been without a club since he agreed to terminate his Aberdeen contract back in April.

Boothroyd replaced Owen Coyle in the managerial hot seat after he left the club in order to return to Scotland to take over at Queen’s Park. Former Scottish Premier League players did well at Jamshedpur last season, as their skipper Peter Hartley played for Motherwell in the past - while their player of the year was Greg Stewart, who has since moved on to rivals Mumbai City FC.

The 31-year-old who is also referred to as JET has loads of experience, considering that he has played for the likes of Arsenal, Blackpool, Doncaster Rovers, Cardiff City, Ipswich Town, Bristol City, Queens Park Rangers, Milton Keynes Dons, Gillingham, PTT Rayong, Livingston and Aberdeen so far in his well-travelled career.

The striker who is also capable of playing as a winger when required has also played for England at the Under-17 and Under-19 level, making seven appearances for the Three Lions so far.
