Ending a long speculation over the availability, Mohun Bagan’s general secretary elect Swapan Sadhan Bose announced that they have “completed the signing”.
“He is in Miami and will apply for his employment visa by today (Thursday) for which the necessary formalities are being addressed,” Bose said in a statement.
Norde will be the sixth foreign signing for Mohun Bagan as he will return after a knee surgery that forced an exit after playing four matches in the last edition of the I-League.
“He has agreed to undergo the required medical and physical fitness test upon his arrival in Kolkata. He will be registered with the Indian Football Association (West Bengal) after successful completion of medical and physical fitness test,” Bose added.
Norde had suffered the injury during Mohun Bagan’s 5-0 win over Churchill Brothers at the Barasat stadium in December last year.
After aggravating his injury against Neroca FC within nine days after the Churchill match, he returned to his country in January this year to undergo a surgery.
The I-League is set to start later this month.
