ISL 2015 Emerging Player Jeje Lalpekhlua, defender Dhanachandra Singh and forward Balwant Singh have been loaned to reigning I-League champions Mohun Bagan.

The trio was part of Mohun Bagan’s I-League winning squad last season also and thus has won the two big trophies in Indian football in the last six months.

Young Jayesh Rane, who provided three assists in the ISL including John Steven Mendoza’s winner in the final, has been sent on loan to his boyhood club Mumbai FC.

Midfielder Zakeer Mundampara has been loaned to I-League newboys DSK Shivajians while Chennaiyin’s two auction buys in the 2015 ISL – midfielder Thoi Singh and goalkeeper Karanjit Singh – have joined Bengaluru FC and Salgaocar respectively.

Barring Jeje, who only completed his loan move to Mohun Bagan on Friday, all six are expected to feature in the opening weekend of the 2015-16 I-League which starts from Saturday.

A few more Chennaiyin players could also be loaned to the I-League later in the season.

Four of Chennaiyin’s loan players during the ISL – Harmanjot Singh Khabra (East Bengal), Sena Ralte (DSK Shivajians), Pawan Kumar (Mumbai FC) and Gilbert Oliveira (Salgaocar) – will also be competing in the I-League.

Everyone at Chennaiyin FC wishes each player the very best for the upcoming I-League.
