Mumbai City FC can confirm that the Club has reached an agreement with Hyderabad FC for the transfer of Vignesh Dakshinamurthy for an undisclosed fee. The 25-year-old leaves the Islanders after a successful 5 year journey at the Club.
Vignesh joined the Islanders in September 2018 off the back of his performances in the 2018 SAFF Championship. The left-back made his debut for the Islanders on February 1, 2019 in a home game against FC Goa. After sporadic appearances in his first two years, Vignesh burst onto the scene in the 2020-21 season, playing in all but one game for Mumbai City as he lifted a ‘double’, winning the ISL League Shield and the ISL Trophy.
Vignesh’s influence on the squad and the performances continued as he became one of the key fixtures in the Islanders’ starting XI. Vignesh went on to represent Mumbai City at the 2022 AFC Champions League and was a part of the squad that won the 2022-23 ISL League title in record-breaking fashion.
Vignesh made 60 appearances over five seasons and scored two stunning goals, against Hyderabad FC (2020/21) and Chennaiyin FC (2022/23), in his journey with the Islanders.
Vignesh’s commitment to the club will be held in high regard at Mumbai City and his contributions during an incredibly successful period for the Islanders will always be remembered.
All of us at Mumbai City would like to thank Vignesh and wish him nothing but the best for his future.
