Jimmy Tamandi (born 12 May 1980 in Malmö, Sweden) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for GAIS. He started his career at Nydala IF before moving to Malmö FF in 1992. He made his professional debut in 1999 when Malmö were relegated. He stayed with the team through promotion in 2000 and then also in the 2001 comeback campaign. In 2002 he switched to AIK where he has had mixed successes. In 2004 he was part of the team that were relegated. Tamandi had at this point already signed for Italian side Salernitana to where he moved in January 2005.

However, Salernitana had changed their management with the management that had signed Tamandi now gone. He was therefore forced out of the club and made play for Serie C side Potenza. In the summer of 2005 Tamandi returned to AIK and was a major part in the club's successful campaign for promotion back to the Allsvenskan.

In 2006 Tamandi has been forced to play left back but has done so with honours. The former U-21 international had a very good season and was close to agreeing a switch to an unnamed top 3 Swiss side, but the deal fell through because AIKs asking price. Tamandi was not bothered as his contract is expiring at the end of 2007, but AIK sure is looking to extend it. If otherwise he could be sold in the summer with the club wanting to cash in rather than risk losing him for nothing in December.
