Fiji’s star striker Roy Kr­ishna is likely to re­turn to the In­dian Su­per League (ISL) for the new sea­son.

The Voda­fone Fi­jian foot­ball skip­per con­firmed yesterday that of­fi­cials of two In­dian fran­chise clubs are now ne­go­ti­at­ing with his agent. Kr­ishna con­firmed that the clubs are Mum­bai City FC, which is owned by Bol­ly­wood star Ran­bir Kapoor, and East Ben­gal FC.

“They have ap­proached Kr­ishna added.

His last club ATK have also ex­pressed their in­ter­est to re­tain him but Kr­ishna is yet to make a de­ci­sion me,” on his pro­fes­sional ca­reer for the 2020/21 sea­son.

“We are cur­rently in ne­go­ti­a­tion and are work­ing out the finer de­tails. Once we’ve come to an agree­ment we’ll make an an­nounce­ment.”

Kr­ishna said they are hav­ing a thor­ough dis­cus­sion with his agent about his fu­ture and that could de­ter­mine a suit­able deal.

The Siberia, Labasa na­tive was the joint top-scorer in last sea­son’s ISL with 15 goals where he cap­tained ATK to clinch their third ISL ti­tle. Kr­ishna also con­firmed there has been no fur­ther dis­cus­sions with his former club, Welling­ton Phoenix.
