Kerala Blasters FC have signed Mizoram winger R Lalthanmawia on a three-year deal until 2027. The 22-year-old makes the move from I-League side Aizawl FC.

Lalthanmawia began his football journey with Aizawl FC's U-14 team. He advanced through Aizawl's youth teams, eventually breaking into the club's first team in the 2022-23 I-League season. He contributed three goals and five assists in 20 I-League games. 

"Lalthanmawia is a young player who brings with him a great deal of talent and opens up more attacking options for the squad. He still has a lot of areas to improve but we saw potential in him and believe that he can do it," said Blasters Sporting Director Karolis Skinkys.

"I am very happy to be a part of a big club like Kerala Blasters FC. It is a massive opportunity for me, and I am grateful to the club's management for showing faith in my ability. I will make sure to put in all my effort to contribute to the team's success in every way possible over the upcoming season," said Lalthanmawia.

He becomes the club’s third domestic signing for the upcoming season after Som Kumar and Likmabam Rakesh. Lalthanmawia will join his teammates in Thailand where Blasters are set to kick off their pre-season training from July 3.
