The 25 year old former Mohammedan SC and Mohun Bagan player is set to join Roundglass Punjab FC for the I-League season.
Sankar joined SC East Bengal after winning I-League with Mohun Bagan but failed to replace veteran Debjit Majumdar and could only make one appearance in the Hero ISL against Jamshedpur FC.
