Loans to Braşov and Gloria BistriţaEdit

Ceahlăul Piatra NeamţEdit
Arman than officially signed with Ceahlăul Piatra Neamţ.
The Karamyan brothers moved to Steaua București in 2010. In the 2009–10 season, Arman was selected as the left winger of the year. After finishing Liga I for the 2009–10 season, the brothers ended their contracts with Steaua București. A search began to find the club they would both continue playing football in. But the process of finding a new club was delayed. Later, it was reported that the brothers were in talks with Braşov. However, the head coach of Braşov Daniel Isăilă later stated that the transition of the Karmanyans was unlikely to be completed because of the complexity of the negotiations, which reached a standstill. Talks were later made for the brothers to play for Astra Giurgiu, coached by Mihai Stoichiță. But after Stoichiță departed from the club, the talks ended. According to an edition of TotalFootball, because of the long search for a new team, the financial conditions for the Karamyan brothers increased to that of a required minimum of 10,000 euros per month. The option that both players finish their playing careers and enter into coaching activities was considered.
In mid-September 2010, the search was over for Karamyan brothers. The football players signed a contract with and officially moved into Unirea Urziceni. Near the end of a match, Arman made his debut for the club coming in as a substitute for 81tH minute of the game.
In late October 2011, Stoichiță, who knew firsthand the playing abilities of both brothers, invited them to his current team Mioveni. However, Artavazd decided to retire as a player and go into business.
Karamyan was a member of the Armenia national team and had participated in 49 international matches and scored 5 goals since his debut in an away friendly match against Guatemala on 9 January 2000 ending 1–1. In 2010, he left the national team.
He and his brother Artavazd Karamyan were both football players and have spent nearly their entire careers playing for the same teams.
