It is understood that it was his compatriot Willis Plaza, who himself recently signed back on the recommendation of newly-appointed coach Khalid Jamil helped put forward the 29-year-old's name to the East Bengal management.

Mitchell last turned out for San Juan Jabloteh in the Trinidad & Tobago Pro League. His only experience plying his trade in Asia came in the form of his spell at Korean second division side Seoul E-Land between 2015 and 2016.
