Baichung Bhutia played for the british club Bury from 1997 to 1999. I think he is the only one in recent times.

As a sidenote: Vikash Dhorasso from France and PSG is of indian origin..

Michael Chopra plays for Cardiff but he rejected the offer to play for India.
There's a guy called Diego Biseswar playing somewhere in Holland and Simran Singh who plays in the Danish second division.

Biseswar doesn't have Indian roots, I think he had Trinidad & Tobago roots somewhere in the family.

A lot of them have rejected playing for India because of the visa hassles.
