Kathmandu, February 11
Tamang, 24, who was playing for Three Star Club in the A-Division League, will join his new team for the remaining four matches of the season.
Tamang will be joining the Indian outfit as their sole AFC quota and is expected to replace Australian defender Tomislav Mrcela. When he makes his debut, he will be the first Nepali to play in the ISL. Tamang, who has been the mainstay of Nepal’s defence, has played for the national team 43 times.
East Bengal are currently in 10th place with 10 points from 16 games. They have only won one game all season and are already out of playoff contention.
