TEHRAN – Iranian football club Persepolis have completed the signing of Croat striker Mario Budimir.

Budimir, 32, has penned an 18-month contract with the Iranian giants after undergoing medical test on Sunday.

Budimir has replaced Godwin Mensha, who has been deemed as surplus to requirements in January. The Nigerian striker is on the verge of joining Foolad.

Budimir has most recently played at Dinamo Zagreb.

Persepolis, who finished runners-up in the 2018 AFC Champions League, are going to strengthen for new season.

Branko Ivankovic’s side are pitted against Qatar’s Al Sadd and Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia in Group D, while they want to win Iran Professional League for the third successive year.
