Sydney FC has agreed to loan Adam Le Fondre to Indian Super League Mumbai City.
Le Fondre has spent two seasons with the Sky Blues scoring 45 goals in 68 appearances in all competitions and helping them to win back-to-back A-League championships.
The 33-year-old agreed to play out the remaining year of his contract overseas.
“Adam has had an unbelievable couple of years with the club and has had a huge influence on our squad,” Sydney coach Steve Corica said.
“He has barely missed a minute of football since arriving and has shown true commitment in every second on the pitch; his performances have been second to none.
“To stand in his way would not be just reward for the service he has given us, and we wish him the best.
Le Fondre thanked Sydney FC for their support on the decision.
“I’ve had two fantastic years here at Sydney FC and have cherished every moment of my life in Australia,” he said.
“We’ve had an unbelievable group of players over the last two seasons and a squad of great people. I will miss them all hugely.
“I’d also like to say a massive thanks to the club for considering mine and my family’s future and allowing me to make this move, as well as every single Sydney FC member for their support during my time at the club.
