Bengaluru: I-League runners-up Bengaluru FC on Wednesday signed strikers Kim Seng-Yong and Seiminlen Doungel as they aim to build on a successful second season.

Bengaluru finished winners of the Federation Cup, runners-up in the I-League and made the last-16 of the AFC Cup.

North Korean Kim is no stranger to Indian football having turned out for Rangdajied United before he switched to Royal Wahingdoh last season where he played a key role in the club's third place finish.

A clinical finisher with an impressive aerial prowess, Kim will replace Australian striker Sean Rooney whose contract with the Blues has expired.

"I consider myself lucky to have been given a chance to play for a club like this. They have done an amazing job on and off the pitch over the past two years. I am looking forward to playing under the guidance of Ashley Westwood and the rest of the staff, and I will do my best to contribute towards the team's success on all fronts, said Kim who is on a one year deal with the club having the choice to extend it for another year.

Twenty-one-year-old Manipuri lad Doungel, who has signed a two-year deal, is the other addition to the Blues' armoury alongside Kim.

The former East Bengal and Shillong Lajong striker said: "It's a club where I know I will improve as a player and I cannot wait to be a part of wonderful things the club does."
