Rajasthan United bashes the transfer deadline day in style with the signing of Uzbek attacking Medio Sardor Jakhonov. He last played for the Kyrgyzstan Club FK Kaganat.

“Uzbek attacking midfielder Sardor Jakhonov has completed his move to RUFC and is likely to land in India by end of this week”a source close to Football Express can confirm.

He is the 3rd signing of the club on the deadline day as they already have completed the signing of Mauro Dos Santos and Rickey Shabong. The club also roped in Pedro Manzi, who won the golden boot in I league 2018-19. Sardor will join the club as an Asian quota footballer.

About the Player

Sardor Jakhonov started his football career with Quizilqum Zarafshon in Uzbekistan. After that, he joined the 2nd division side FC Qqtepa. But due to lack of game time there he moved on to the Xorazm Urganch FC side. Last summer he moved to the Kyrgystan club FK Kaganat. He made 12 appearances there scoring 2 goals.

He has great skill with the ball. His dribbling skills will surely help the Rajasthan squad in their attacking movements. Also, his ability to give deadly through passes is surely a threat to the opponents.

Rajasthan in transfer market so far

With the suspension of the I league due to a bio bubble breach, the Rajasthan side decided to sent out Marcelinho Leite on loan to North East United FC. Komron Turusnov was also released from the side. He joined Churchill Brothers. The contracts of Diego Bielkiewicz and Fabiano Alves were mutually terminated.

Rajasthan United made headlines in their debut match in the I league as they were forced to play with 9 players on the pitch due to registration problems. They lost the match against Churchill brothers by 2-0. They qualified for I League after winning the I league qualifier only in their debut season.
