Stephen Appiah is set to sign for Iranian giants Persepolis

Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah is set to sign for Iranian giants Persepolis on a bumper contract, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The midfielder is expected to arrive in Iran in the coming days to complete a medical before sealing the deal.

Persepolis has reached an agreement with Appiah’s agent and he is expected to participate in the team’s training soon.
He will move on a free transfer but his salary is said to be similar to what he was earning with Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
Persepolis has reportedly negotiated with former Barcelona and Chelsea midfielder Deco, who currently plays for Brazilian team Fluminense to also join Appiah at the club.
After South Korean Kwon Jun left Persepolis due to a foot injury, the team’s officials are seeking to bolster their midfield.
Stephen Appiah has played for Udinese, Parma, Juventus, Fenerbahce and Serbian club Vojvodina.
The 31-year-old midfielder has made 69 appearances for Ghana football team and scored 16 goals.
Appiah captained Ghana at their World Cup debut in 2006 and was a member of their squad for the 2010 World Cup.

This comes after the midfielder rejected a two-year contract offer from Serbian side Vojvodina because of unpaid wages.

    Make the money my captain. At this stage in your career, all that matters is the size of the cheque. Go there and bring back some that oil money.
