Sandesh Jhingan has been an integral part of the Kerala Blasters set up since the inaugural edition of the ISL where he made his bones after being named the Emerging Player of the Year. His stock has been on the rise ever since and he has helped the Tuskers reach the ISL finals twice in three years.

The 23-year-old, one of Indian national team's first choice defenders, played on loan for Bengaluru FC in the recently concluded domestic season and helped the Blues win the Federation Cup. The Blasters fans will be hoping Jhingan can finally land a trophy while donning a yellow shirt.
