Formerly of Reading, Burnley and Middlesbrough, 33-year-old Bikey was one of NorthEast's best performers on his ISL debut in 2015, capping off nine appearances.

"I am looking forward to joining ATK and helping them achieve success in season 5 of the Indian Super League. I have much respect for head coach Steve Coppell and that made it an easy decision for me to sign here," Bikey who represented Jamshedpur FC last season said.

"The passion for football in Kolkata is one of the best in India, I can't wait to get started."

He represented his nation Cameroon at three Africa Cup of Nations tournament in 2006, 2008, and 2010 and was also a member of their Beijing 2008 Olympics squad.
