Keegan Pereira had been part of Bengaluru FC and the Indian national team in 2016. He was a regular starter for ATK and NEUFC. However, in 2019/20 season, he made just 4 appearances for Jamshedpur FC and was released in January by the ISL franchise and ever since he is without a team.
East Bengal FC have already roped in defenders Lalramchullova and Novin Gurung, both of them can play as left backs as well as right backs.
