Dias signs for EB
In an apparent breach of their three-year contract with Mahindra United, India’s star attacking midfielders Steven Dias and N.P. Pradeep have made themselves available for East Bengal. While Dias signed up for the club on Friday, Pradeep will complete the formalities on Saturday morning, a club official said.
The club official claimed that though were contracted with the Mumbai club, the duo could still sign with their club. The AIFF said they had received a complaint from the Mumbai club in this regard.
