Margao: Dempo SC have roped in Viva Kerala's striker Anil Kumar and Vasco's midfielder Savio Fernandes for the coming season.

The 29-year old, Viva Kerala striker who is presently training with the India Senior squad in New Delhi was the second highest Indian goal scorer in this season's I-League with 11 goals to his credit among the Indian players.

Kumar's pace and ability to score goals have caught the eye of coach Armando Colaco said Dempo's manager Custodio Almeida.

They have also promoted seven of their U-20 players to the senior squad for the new season.
