In 2016, Ashique joined FC Pune City academy. In October 2016 it was announced that Kuruniyan would join Villarreal C, the third-team of La Liga side Villarreal, on loan from Pune City. But after 4 months of training in Spain, he returned to India because of a hamstring injury.

In July 2017, it was announced that Kuruniyan had signed a professional contract with Pune City and was retained by the club for their upcoming Indian Super League campaign.

If deal goes through, It will be interesting to see that how much game time Ashique will get since Sunil Chhetri plays on left wing for Bengaluru FC. Since Ashique has few years remaining in his contract, Bengaluru FC are set to pay big amount of transfer fee.
