I’ve rubbed shoulders with the very best in the Premier League and would love to share the benefit of my experience with the squad. The challenge of representing the Red and Gold motivates me to reach for new heights.”
Fox made his international debut for Scotland in 2009 against Wales. He has played a total of four international matches for the Scots.

East Bengal are currently in Goa and the players and the coaching staff will undergo a 14-day quarantine period before they can start their pre-season training.
Manager Robbie Fowler and his coaching staff are already in India along with Fox, Pilkington and Amadi-Holloway. The rest of the foreign contingent is expected to arrive in Goa soon.
