Nirmal Chettri has joined Mohammedan Sporting Club on loan from IMG-Reliance till the end of the 2013-14 I-League season.

The Indian international was most recently on trial at 2nd Division Bundesliga club Fortuna Dusseldorf along with Dempo SC midfielder Godwin Franco. The German club who were impressed with him have invited Nirmal back for pre-season training ahead of the 2014-15 season.

“I am happy to join Mohammedan Sporting for the remainder of the season,” Nirmal said on the signing. “They have shown interest for a long time and I was keen on joining the club as they really wanted me. I hope I can help the club who have shown faith in me.”

“Fortuna Dusseldorf wanted me to stay back there for a longer trial but my visa duration was very short so I could not stay longer. I hope to return for their pre season in 2014,” Nirmal added.
