I-League champions Salgaocar has roped in Mohun Bagan striker Edeh Chidi for the upcoming season while dropping Yusif Yakubu who played a vital role in their triumph.

Besides Chidi, they have roped five more players to strengthen the squad - Ishfafq Ahmed, Biswajit Saha (Mohun Bagan), Dada Nabeel (Air India), Mehrajudding Wadoo (East Bengal) and Kartik Kisku (Mohammedan).

Salgaocar's Secretary Raj Gomes said Chidi is a potent striker upfront who will do a good job for the team to replace Yakubu who has decided to pack his bags as he is not interested in playing in India.

The I-League champions have managed to retain their skipper Brazilian Luciano Sbrozo and Japanese midfielder Ryuji Sueoka, while Nigerian striker Ekene Ikenwa's contract will not be renewed.

"We still have one slot for a foreign player which will be filled later," said the club secretary.
