Subrata Pal’s loan spell at Danish Superliga outfit FC Vestsjaelland officially ends on June 30 but effectively the stint is already over as the season in Denmark has ended.
The 27-year-old India goalkeeper only appeared in a few reserve league games for Vestsjaelland but the club have been impressed with Subrata’s performances and are willing to offer him another spell after the first season of the Indian Super League (ISL) in the next January transfer window.
“The feedback was very positive. He has improved a lot and is definitely a Danish Division one starting goalkeeper. Whether he can play regularly in the Superliga is not clear mainly because of his physique and the style of play in Denmark, which is quite physical. He is definitely welcome to come back after the ISL,” a source close to the club told Sportskeeda.
Subrata, who is currently holidaying in Europe, is contracted to IMG-Reliance and thus expected to play for one of the franchises in the ISL. As a result he won’t available to return to Vestsjaelland for the start of the next Superliga season in July.
Vestsjaelland, who finished ninth in the 12-team league last season, are also happy with the way Subrata got along with his new teammates during the loan spell and the fact that he adapted to the conditions of Denmark should also help the India international if he wishes to go there again in January.
Subrata is also expected to try his luck elsewhere in Europe and the experience at Vestsjaelland should give him confidence for future ventures.Published 29 May 2014, 18:15 IST
