Indian striker Robin Singh has said he is excited to be part of the Indian Super League's (ISL) upcoming edition and is looking forward to giving his "heart out on the field" for whichever team he gets to play.
The lanky striker, along with a host of Indian stars, which includes the likes of Sunil Chhetri, Eugeneson Lyngdoh and Jackichand Singh, goes under the hammer on 10 July to be picked by one of the eight ISL franchisees.
Stamped at a base price of Rs 40 Lakh, Robin is willing to take his impressive form from the 2014-15 I-League season for Bengaluru FC to the ISL 2015.
"I am honoured and excited to be part of the first Hero ISL Player Auction," the 25-year-old told the official website of ISL.
"Everything about the ISL last year was amazing. I loved the crowd present at the game and the marquee players were absolutely outstanding. The ISL has put Indian football on the world map and I'd love to be a part of the revolution.
"Whichever team I get included into, I would give my heart out on the field (for them). Being a professional, it's my job to adapt to every style of play; and last season, all teams played some amazing football," said Singh.
The former East Bengal striker, who plays badminton and hits the gym apart from spending time at home and eating healthy during the off-season, scored 11 goals from 41 appearances for Bengaluru FC, over two seasons.
Singh made the switch to the Bangalore outfit in 2013 and helped the side in lifting the I-League title in their debut season.
On being asked about his preferred team to play for in the ISL, the Noida lad quipped three names – Delhi Dynamos, Mumbai City FC and Kerala Blasters.
"[I have] No favourites, but being a Delhi boy, I'd like to play for Delhi Dynamos. Also, it would be an honour to partner [Nicolas] Anelka [at Mumbai City FC]! But we'll have to wait till the 10th to know if that happens.
"[Also,] if I get selected by Kerala Blasters, I would like to meet Sachin Tendulkar first :)," said Singh.
With 18 caps for the national team and the recent successes in the domestic league in his bag, Singh will be hot property during the ISL Player auction on 10 July.
Meanwhile, defending champions Atletico de Kolkata have announced the signing of Hungarian custodian Juan Calatayud ahead of the ISL 2015. They had earlier announced the signings of South African footballer Sammehg Doutie and Spanish duo Jaime Gavilán Martínez and José Luis Espinosa Arroyo.
