Chittagong Abahani are all set to sign Chencho Gyeltshen for the second half of the ongoing premier league season following the Bhutanese striker's recent displays against Bangladesh in the Asian Cup Qualifiers Play-off matches.
The 20-year-old centre-forward is reported to have agreed personal terms with the Chittagong outfit and is scheduled to land in Dhaka on Saturday. The second players' transfer window ahead of the second phase of the premier league will open this Friday and close on October 31 and between this time, Chencho will officially sign the contract.
It was learnt that newly-promoted premier league club Uttar Baridhara first approached the Bhutan all-time top-scorer with an offer believed to be around $2,000 per month. Chittagong Abahani tabled a better offer and got their player. The deal could run till the end of season which means for around two months.
Chencho represented Bhutan in different age-level teams from Under-12 to U-19 and has now become one of the key players in the senior side. He scored two goals against Bangladesh in the Asian Cup Qualifiers Play-off second leg on Monday.
