PLDC – Paykan striker Morteza Aghakhan joined Iranian football giant Esteghlal on Thursday.
Aghakhan has penned a three-year contract with Esteghlal for an undisclosed fee.
Aghakhan is Esteghlal’s first summer signing.
The 25-year-old forward joined Paykan from Mes Rafsanjan in 2013 and scored 23 goals in 86 matches for the team.
Aghakhan is a product of Esteghlal’s youth academy.
Esteghlal is negotiating with Mame Baba Thiam but the Senegalese striker has yet to extend his contract.
German coach Winfried Schaefer is going to end Esteghlal’s five-year title drought in Iran Professional League.
