He has played a total of 40 matches for the club scoring six times. Leon has signed a two year contract with the club.

24-year-old Melroy Assisi has signed for Punjab FC from I-League side Rajasthan United FC on a three-year deal. The center-back was one of the standout performers for Rajasthan in the last couple of seasons. The Dubai-born defender has previously played for the youth side of Chennaiyin FC before joining Rajasthan United FC. Melroy has signed for three years with the club.

Speaking about the new signings, the Technical Director of Punjab FC, Nikolaos Topoliatis said “We are happy to welcome these young and talented players to the Club.
