Iain Fyfe signs for Iran's Mes Kerman

The experienced stopper will be plying his trade in the Persian Gulf rather than South Australia after completing a switch from Hindmarsh to Shahid Bahonar Stadium

Defender Iain Fyfe has left Adelaide United for Iranian club Mes Kerman.

Fyfe,  31, has joined the Iran Pro League outfit on a free transfer, signing a deal understood to be worth $US260,000.

New Reds coach Josep Gombau has made no secret of his desire to move on some players, drawing attention to a surplus of centre-backs during his first months in charge at Hindmarsh Stadium.

And Adelaide made no attempt to block Fyfe's departure to the Middle East, publicly announcing last week they were allowing him to travel to Iran to meet with his prospective employers.
