Patosi’s performances certainly caught the eye, and the Iranian giants came in with an offer that could potentially be worth around R10m if he manages to impress.

The Siya crew has been informed that the attacker has joined Esteghlal on loan for the remainder of the current season, though have an option to buy the player for around R10m should things go well between now and July.

With his new club facing Paykan on Thursday, they have a chance to move up the Persian Gulf Pro League table and Patosi could potentially make his debut for his new club as they aim to extend a five-game unbeaten run.
