Mumbai: India full backs Gouramangi Singh and Nirmal Chettri, who have both signed to play in the upcoming IPL-style franchise football league, are hopeful they can take part in this season's I-League too despite the clubs' opposition to the new IMG-Reliance league.

"As a player I have been given this opportunity to be part of IMG-R league and am hopeful everything is sorted out and I will be playing in the I-League also," said Gouramangi Singh after a training session at the Cooperage ground this morning.

I-League clubs have refused to loan players to the IPL-style league to be held from January 18-March 30 next year and have also not shown willingness to take in players who are associated with IMG-R's tournament on loan to play for them.
