TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Former Esteghlal striker Goran Jerkovic joined Iranian football club Siahjamegan on Wednesday.
The French footballer has joined the Mashhad-based club on a six-month contract for an undisclosed fee.

Jerkovic started his playing career at French club Lyon Duchere in 2005 and joined Serbian club Zalgiris in 2010.
The 30-year-old attacker has also played in Thailand’s Buriram and Montenegrin football team Iskra Danilovgrad.
