Adam Le Fondre (Mumbai City FC)
Adam Le Fondre (33) joined Reading ahead of the 2011-12 season and became almost an instant success at the club.
He scored 12 goals in 32 games and helped the club secure promotion into the Premier League for the 2012-13 season.
Anthony Pilkington (SC East Bengal)
SC East Bengal fans will have high expectations from Anthony Pilkington, who was a part of an impressive Norwich City side that played in the Premier League from 2011 to 2014 before they were relegated to the Championship.
The 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international's record was especially good as he was a key element of Norwich City that managed to survive relegation in their first two seasons.
He played a total of 75 appearances for Norwich City and scored 14 goals.
He was later transferred to Cardiff City and then to Wigan Athletic.
Daniel Fox (SC East Bengal)
Daniel Fox (34) is as solid as they come and has played on two separate occasions in the Premier League with two different clubs.
Playing for Burnley in 2009-10 season, Fox made his Premier League debut.
However, after making just 14 appearances for the club, Burnley was relegated.
Fox later joined Southampton and helped the club to secure promotion ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.
He kept his place in the starting XI alongside the likes of Jose Fonte, Rickie Lambert and Morgan Schneiderlin.
Gary Hooper (Kerala Blasters FC)
Gary Hooper, at a point in his career, was among the names for Roy Hodgson’s England squad.
He was the target of several Premier League clubs while he was playing for Celtic, a club where he managed to win back-to-back titles.
Hooper made the move from Celtic to Norwich City ahead of the 2013-14 season and was a regular in the club’s starting XI for most of the season.
Steven Taylor (Odisha FC)
Steven Taylor (34) was among the first few overseas players to join an ISL club ahead of this season.
The former Newcastle United centre-back has played over a decade in the Premier League, making over 200 appearances before his transfer to the Portland Timbers in the United States.
