Putia joined Kerala Blasters in 2020 and quickly became an integral part of the team. In the 2021-22 season, Blasters made a dream leap and reached the finals. Putia’s spell in central midfield that season was with Jackson Singh.
There were earlier indications that he might extend his contract with the Putia club, whose deal with the Blasters expires on May 31, 2023. But things quickly turned upside down. A related question was also raised with Blasters coach Ivan Vukomanovic after the Odisha FC-Kerala Blasters match as there were many rumors surrounding Putia’s future. Ivan gave a clear answer that Putia will leave Blasters at the end of the season.
“In professional football, players and coaches come and go. It’s part of the process. He (Putia) was one of the most important players last season. He did his job in the best possible way. Now he’s got some opportunities in front of him. He’s very good. I wish him all the best.” Ivan Vukomanovich answered the question about Putia.
At the same time, it is reported that Putia, who will leave Kerala Blasters after the 2022-23 season, has reached an agreement with another club in the Indian Super League. Famous sports journalist Marcus Mergulao also tweeted about this the other day. But it is not yet clear which team this is. Reports are spreading in the social media that the player will join ATK Mohun Bagan.
Twenty-four-year-old Putia has played for DSK Shivajians, Aizawl FC and North East United FC before joining Kerala Blasters. The Aizawl native has played 65 matches in the Indian Super League so far, scoring one goal and assisting five goals.
