IN: Juande – He was roped in as a replacement for Sergio Cidoncha, who suffered injury early in the season. The Spaniard so far has acted as a defensive screen in midfield for the Blasters squad and has brought them more solidity defensively.
ISL 2020-21 January Transfer window: Mumbai City FC
IN: Jackichand Singh – Jacki was having a strong season with Jamshedpur FC before Mumbai City FC decided to bring him in. He has so far continued his season in the same vein.

ISL 2020-21 January Transfer window: SC East Bengal
IN: Subrata Paul, Raju Gaikwad, Ankit Mukherjee, Bright Enobakhare, Nirmal Chhetri – THE most active team. Raju Gaikwad and Ankit Mukherjee have helped shore up the defence, while Paul will provide keeping cover. Nirmal Chhetri had a rather indifferent start, getting sent off on his first start but he is supposed to provide quality in defensive midfield. Bright Enobakhare has been the singing of the window so far, revolutionising the SCEB attack.
