Pohang Steelers midfielder André Moritz joins Indian Super League franchise Mumbai City on loan
Pohang Steelers attacking midfielder André Moritz has joined Indian Super League [ISL] franchise Mumbai City on loan.
The 28 year-old, who recently had spells in England with Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers, only signed with K League Classic holders Pohang in September, but is yet to make an appearance.
The Florianópolis native will join the likes of Nicolas Anelka, Fredrik Ljungberg and Manuel Friedrich at Mumbai, while former England international Peter Reid is the manager.
The signing of Moritz takes the number of Brazilians set to play in India up to eight, with André Santos, Erwin Spitzner, Pedro Gusmão, Guilherme Batata, Elano, Bruno Pelissari and Gustavo Marmentini also involved.
The inaugural ISL season kicks off on Sunday, when Mumbai face Atlético de Kolkata at the Salt Lake Stadium in West Bengal.
