Bengaluru FC have signed Indian U-19 Internationals Daniel Lalhlimpuia, Nishu Kumar and Malsawmzuala. The young singnings from Bengaluru FC were a part of the AIFF Youth Academy for the past three years.

Striker, Daniel Lalhlimpuia and Malsawmzuala, who plays as a midfielder, both are from Mizoram while Nishu who plays as wing back hails from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.

Indian U-19 skipper, Daniel was a part of AFC Cup Qualifiers for team India in junior age groups of U-16 and U-19. The three signings have also featured against Bengaluru FC in a friendly in Bengaluru earlier in August 2015.

Ashley Westwood, Bengaluru FC head coach said, "We are pleased and proud in equal measure to announce the signing of these three youngsters. At Bengaluru FC, we pride ourselves in identifying and recruiting players who we feel, once given a platform and time to adapt to our training and system, can improve and become an asset to us and the national team."

The gaffer also spoke highly of the new signings and their scope to grow in the club, "We are confident that these three boys have the attributes and attitude to develop and become household names in India. It's only been two years since BFC was founded but we've handed the national team as many as 9 players across age categories, with most of them making their debuts and this is down to our philosophy and hard work. We are certain this will continue."

Bengaluru FC have already snapped up the likes of Kim Song-Yong, Len Doungel, Alwyn George and Salam Ranjan Singh for the upcoming i-League 2015-16 which kicks off on January 2016.
