The player had been supervised by Loïc Perrin on August 9 during the preliminary round of the Champions League between Ferencvaros and Qarabag in Hungary, during a match where he scored twice.

This pocket striker (1.75m) has flattering stats of 20 goals in 36 games in the Azerbaijani league last season. Globe-trotter, he had previously worn the colors of Haugesund in Norway where he had scored 19 goals in 43 games.
