KOLKATA: I-League title holders Mohun Bagan on Saturday announced they have roped in 23-year-old midfielder Kean Lewis, who has earlier plied his trade in the US for sides like Houston Dynamo and Laredo Heat, for the 2015-16 soccer season.

"Lewis was on trial with the Green & Maroon and impressed one and all with his performance in practice matches the team played in preparation of CFL Premier Division-A," said a Mohun Bagan statement.

In early 2010, Lewisgave a trial at the Leicester City Academy (junior team). He was then 14 years old.

At Leicester City he trained with the U-16 and U-14 squads.

After Leicester, he continued playing for Mahindra United under the guidance of Santosh Kashyap. He participated in the U-15 Manchester Cup where he was the highest goal scorer.

In 2014 he continued to play in the Houston Football Association Premier League for Dynamo, which is the top league in Houston (not U-23).

In early 2015, Houston Dynamo loaned him to Laredo Heat Soccer Club in Laredo, Texas. The team plays in the USL Premier Development League (PDL).
