Mohun Bagan are on the verge of sealing the signature of highly rated I-League winning centre-back Kingsley Obumneme, Feverpitch.in can confirm. 

As learned from the sources, the Aizawl FC defender will be signing for the Kolkata giants on a short-term deal for the Calcutta Football League (CFL) with an option to extend it depending on his performances. 

Kingsley was a rock at the heart of the Aizawl defence in the I-League with an impressive tackle success rate of 73%. Kingsley's ability to build up attacks from the back puts him in the rare category of ball playing center backs, something which worked wonders for Khalid Jamil.  

Kingsley has been quite a journeyman in India, playing in the state leagues for numerous other teams like HAL, Assam Dynamos, Dinthar etc. before finding success with Aizawl. The Nigerian center back is also no stranger to Kolkata Football as he had previously plied his trade for teams like Kalighat Milan Sangha, Police AC, United SC and Peerless.

With neighbours East Bengal already making a splash in the transfer market, the Green and Maroon Brigade are slowly making their presence felt.

Kingsley's signature will also draw the curtains on Eduardo Ferreira's Mohun Bagan journey.
