He moves on a free transfer after leaving East Bengal SC. He was a youth product of United Punjab Football Club. He will join Bengaluru FC ahead of their clash against Eagles FC in the AFC Cup playoff stage.

I want to give my best for this club and win trophies with it,” Harmanpreet told PTI.

A versatile, hard-working attacker capable of playing in a variety of positions in the attacking final third, Harmanpreet can play on the left or the right. A team member of Punjab Police, his father Satnam Singh, was a player, while his uncle won the Durand Cup with JCT Phagwara.
