Bangladesh Premier League champion Bashundhara Kings have roped in Tajikistan defender and captain Nazarov Akhtam in a bid to strengthen their defence line for the upcoming season.

Nazarov is scheduled to make a short trip to Dhaka Friday to complete the official registration formalities before returning to the national team ahead of their 2022 World Cup and Asian Cup joint qualifier against Kyrgyzstan Tuesday.

The 27-year old Tajik left-back will be the fourth foreign recruit of Bashundhara after Costa Rican forward Daniel Colindres, Kyrgyz midfielder Baktyiar Duishobekov and Lebanese striker Jalal Kdouh.

“We are trying to make our defence stronger and I hope Nazarov would be a good pick. He can play as center-back. Now we have two Asian signings which would help us to field one if the other gets injured,” said Kings president Imrul Hasan Thursday .

Another good news for the Kings before the deadline day of the transfer window Wednesday is that their national defender Topu Barman is set to return to action with a practice match Friday after sustaining a long-term anterior cruciate ligament injury.
