Kolkata football giants East Bengal club on Tuesday confirmed the signing of their fourth foreigner for the I-League, Kyrgyzstan international Ildar Amirov.

Amirov last played for Turanspor in Turkish League as a forward, but his track record as a striker both for his club and his national team hasn't been too impressive. The 29-year-old forward is known for his strong physical play. He is good in aerial battles and stands at 6ft 2 inches tall.

The Kyrgyzstani of Tatar descent has played for more than a decade for his country but has only scored twice in 33 appearances.

East Bengal drew their opening I-League game at home against Aizawl FC 1-1.
