Indian Super League side NorthEast United FC have extended the contract of their in-form striker Parthib Gogoi until summer 2027.
Parthib Gogoi, who joined the club in 2022 on a multi-year contract, has shown consistent growth and determination.

Expressing his excitement about extending his contract, Parthib remarked, “I am deeply honored and thrilled to continue my journey with NorthEast United FC. This club has become my second home, and I am profoundly grateful for the opportunities it has provided me. I am eager to contribute more to the team and make our fans proud.
