Tarmo Neemelo (born 10 February 1982) is an Estonian professional footballer, who plays in Estonian Meistriliiga, for JK Nõmme Kalju. He plays the position of striker and is also a member of the Estonia national football team.

Club career[edit]

Tarmo Neemelo was born in Paide, Estonia. He began playing football in local club FC Lelle and was noticed by FC Flora Tallinn, one of the major clubs in Estonia. He did not manage to get into the first team and decided to move from Flora Tallinn to FC Kuressaare. He then moved to FC TVMK Tallinn in 2004.

In the 2005 season, for FC TVMK Tallinn, he scored 41 goals in 33 games, which put him in 12th place in the ESM Golden Shoe.

In 2006 he has moved to Sweden for the coming season, to potentially partner fellow striker Henrik Larsson at Helsingborgs IF. In the previous season, he scored 13 goals in 25 games for his club. He soon moved back to FC TVMK Tallinn though on a short loan spell to gain match practice. At the start of the 2007 Allsvenskan season, he was again loaned out to Superettan club GIF Sundsvall.

In February 2008, he signed a two-year contract with Finnish Veikkausliiga club MYPA. On 1 January 2009 joined to Belgian club S.V. Zulte Waregem, with teammate Eetu Muinonen, but he was often a substitute being a part of the starting eleven just twice. On 31 July 2009 S.V. Zulte Waregem officials released the Estonian forward by mutual consent, he returned to FC Levadia Tallinn.

When his contract ran out at Levadia after the 2010 season, he trained with JK Nõmme Kalju[2] and joined the club on 7 February 2011 on a two-year contract,[3] despite league rival FC Flora Tallinn's attempts to sign him as a replacement for Sander Post.[2] He finished the season as the club's top league goalscorer with 22 goals in 32 matches.[4]
