Indo-British footballer Paranveer Singh, who is keen on a permanent move to India, has revealed he has had trials with multiple Indian football clubs over the last month and a half.

Singh, who has represented top English clubs of the likes of West Ham United, Watford FC and Leyton Orient, had told International Business Times Singapore earlier that he will be doing all that is necessary to earn a spot in the Indian national team in the near future.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder is now taking the first step in the direction towards making his dream come true as he wants to get accustomed to the conditions and training methods in India, which, according to him, are quite different from those in London.

A few of the clubs, where he had trials at, have shown interest to bring the English footballer on board but nothing has been finalised yet, Singh reveals. He added that he wants to feature in the upcoming Indian football season but right now is focussed on getting himself prepared for a potential stint in the Asian nation.

"Yes, it is not a secret that I have been doing some travelling over the last 6 weeks, visiting different cities/states and training with various clubs which had been agreed prior and during my visit however I feel out of respect and confidentiality for the clubs that I cannot share the information," Singh told International Business Times Singapore.

"As of now, there is not yet been any documents or contracts signed, I have returned to London for a holiday and will return in January to continue the journey during the transfer window.

"Some clubs are still discussing and expressing interest for me which I am open to, I am excited to play football in India which you all know, where I will be playing next season I am not sure as of yet.

"My main concern right now is my personal comfort which will allow me to focus on my football and get the best out of myself, I think that is the important thing for me."
