Indian Super League side SC East Bengal have finalised the signing of striker Rahul Paswan from Calcutta Football League side BSS Sporting Club. He will remain with the club till the end of the season.
The 23-year-old forward came first in the CFL scoring charts this season with six goals. Paswan, who had a terrific stint with BSS was on East Bengal's radar since the conclusion of the CFL. He becomes the seventh striker to sign for the Red and Gold Brigade this season after Semboi Haokip, Antonio Perosevic, Daniel Chima Chukwu, Siddhant Sirodhkar, Marcelo Riberio and Subho Ghosh .

The United Sports Club graduate has previously plied his trade at ARA FC and Kalighat Milan Sangha before joining BSS in 2021. Rahul will undergo the mandatory quarantine period and will join the squad thereafter.

SC East Bengal are now standing at the bottom of the table with six points from eleven matches and are still winless in the tournament. The Red and Gold Brigade will take on FC Goa in their next Indian Super League match tomorrow at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda and they will surely like to get their first win of the season under new head coach, Mario Rivera.
