Shillong, Jan 24: Kynsailang Khongsit has become the fifth Shillong Lajong player to make a move, with the club announcing today that he will join the Indian Super League club Hyderabad FC’s reserve side that will take part in this season’s Second Division League.
Khongsit follows in the footsteps of Samuel Lyngdoh Kynshi, Kenstar Kharshong, Naorem Mahesh Singh (all heading to Kerala Blasters’ B team) and Phrangki Buam (FC Bengaluru United).
The 19-year-old defender made the switch to Lajong along with Buam from the old Royal Wahingdoh and won the U-18 Youth League (now Elite League) with SLFC in 2018.
Khongsit made his I-League debut in Lajong’s first match of 2017-18 against Gokulam Kerala and has made a total of 22 appearances across two seasons in the I-League.
Hyderabad are in Group B of the Second Division. The reserve sides of the Indian Super League teams will only play in the group stage of the competition.
