He was a free agent after a dispute over unpaid salary with his previous club Tractor Sazi in Azerbaijan, who were managed by John Toshack.

Former Republic of Ireland international Stokes, who scored 76 goals in 191 appearances for Celtic, scored 11 goals in 23 appearances while with Tractor in Azerbaijan but uncertainty about the club’s project and finances prompted an early departure
