Gani Nigam, a winger, hails from Kozhikode, Kerala. He caught everyone's eye playing for the FC Pune City reserve team. In 2018 he was signed by his hometown club Gokulam Kerala FC and got some game time at the top division league, playing in 5 I-League matches and notching up one goal against Shillong Lajong.
In 2019 he was picked up by Hyderabad FC, and over the course of the season he got only one start in ISL 2019-20 and 4 appearances as a substitute.
Coming towards the end of his formative years as a footballer, Gani needs more game time, and joining Mohammedan Sporting will hopefully give him just that.
