Phrangki Buam, a 19-year-old midfielder from Shillong Lajong FC, has signed a three-year contract with FC Goa.

Making his senior debut on the national stage in the 2018/19 season of the Hero I-League, the youngster went on to become an instant hit.

He scored six goals for Shillong Lajong FC in that campaign, making him the third-highest Indian goal scorer in the league and the highest for the club.

Speaking to fcgoa.in after completing the transfer, Buam said, “Well, it’s an absolute honour for me to join FC Goa.”

“I am happy and excited. There is real joy in my heart and I am really looking forward to my future as a Gaur,” he said.

“To be honest, over the past few years, I have become a fan of FC Goa. The style and the mentality to always attack is something that drew me,” he added.

“I watched nearly all the FC Goa games last season and even when I couldn’t, I would watch the whole replay,” he added.

“So, this is like making my dream move. I hope to now give my best and bring even more success for the team in the times to come,” he further said.
