Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Agayev began playing football during his school years under his father for local club named Bərəkət.[1] At the young age of just 15, he debuted for Azerbaijani U-17, after he was spotted by one of national coaches. After his impressive performances for youth team, he joined Shafa Baku and won his first big trophy under Vagif Sadygov in 2001.[1]

In 2004, he was signed by PFC Turan Tovuz, serving two years in the club, then purchased by Khazar Lankaran.[1] During the 2006–07 season, his performances proved to be instrumental, where club won Azerbaijan Premier League and Azerbaijan Cup. In his first season in the Azerbaijan Premier League, Agayev confirmed his performances, firmly ensuring a place in the starting lineup, his performances being praised by many football pundits.[1] During 6 seasons spent at Khazar Lankaran, Agayev became national champion, two time national league runner-up, three time Azerbaijani Cup winner and CIS Cup champion.
