Anthony Stokes' move to Turkey could be held up as his previous club in Iran claim that the Dubliner is still under contract with them, writes Aidan Fitzmaurice.

Stokes (30) announced last month that he was leaving Iranian side Tractor Sazi, one year into a two-season contract, and after being linked with a number of clubs in the UK, was unveiled on Tuesday by Turkish second-tier outfit Adana Demirspor as their new signing on a two-year deal with the option for a third.

But Tractor Sazi have responded by insisting that Stokes was still under contract and they denied media reports that Stokes had left Iran because he had not been paid his wages for four months, the Iranians pledging to take Stokes and his Turkish club to FIFA.
