The 24-year-old, was once on the books of Dutch Eredivisie side Utrecht, was in line for a move to BEC Tero Sasana a couple of weeks ago after it was revealed he was trialling with the club.

Irfan, who was born in the Netherlands but qualifies to play for Indonesia through his father, won his first cap for Merah Putih in 2010 and was recently a member of the side that were eliminated in the group stage of the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup.
Nonetheless, he is still regarded as one of Southeast Asia's top attackers and enjoyed a prolific scoring record in the Indonesia Premier League with Persema.
Chonburi, who finished second in the league last season, already have a formidable foreign contingent at their disposal and recently bolstered their attacking options by signing Nigerian striker Samuel Ajayi from Bangkok Glass.
