Indian Super League (ISL) franchise FC Pune City on Friday announced the signing of Spanish midfielder Marcos Tebar, who had last year represented Delhi Dynamos in the cash-rich football tournament. Tebar, a product of the famed Real Madrid Academy, represented Real Madrid Castilla (B Team) mostly. 

The Madrid-born player later represented Rayo Vallecano, Segunda Division side Girona FC and Almeria before a spell in 2016 at Brentford in England. Tebar has been capped by Spain at the under-17 levels playing alongside Cesc Fabregas and David Silva at the U-17 World Cup and European Championships.

"This is a new challenge for me and playing alongside Antonio Habas and his team will hopefully be an experience to remember. I am looking forward to playing for FC Pune City," Tebar said after the signing.

"I am sure the fans will have an exciting season to look forward to as I share the same aim as the team has, that is to win the title this season," he added.

Commenting on the signing, head coach Antonio Habas said: "Marcos' experience of playing at top-flight clubs in Europe will be very useful for the team. His approach to the game is very tactical and at a time when we are forming a new core team, his presence will hopefully make a difference."
