Kolkata: Former Indian Super League champions ATK announced the signing of East Bengal forward Jobby Justin for a three-year pre-contract, commencing June 2019.
Jobby, a native of Vettukadu of Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, who also plays as forward for the national team, had scored nine goals, the most by an Indian, in East Bengal's runners-up finish in the I-League.
The 25-year-old had earlier played with KSEB and Titanium teams also. He had scored 18 goals from 47 matches for East Bengal in two seasons and 11 goals from 26 I-League matches.
ATK expects that they can score well in the matches with Jobby joining the team with Balwant Singh and Komal Thatal. The ISL's Kolkata franchise also extended contracts of the Spanish duo of captain Manuel Lanzarote and Edu Garcia, along with Englishman John Johnson.
