Meghalaya winger Redeem Tlang on Monday became FC Goa’s first signing of the season. He was previously a part of the NorthEast United FC.

Hailing from Shillong, the 25-year-old winger came through the ranks at Shillong Lajong and made his I-League debut in 2013.

After a number of successful seasons in the red of Lajong, he made a permanent move to the Highlanders in 2018 - making an immediate impact, a media release by FC Goa said.

With him controlling the right wing, NorthEast United made it to the playoffs for the very first time in the 2018/19 season. Last season also saw the winger improve on a personal front - scoring three goals in the football league.
