Nice get from Hajduk.
Very nice get.

Unless Osijek put it all together this season and really stay neck and neck with Dinamo for the title, I think 2nd place is Hajduk's to lose. Good coach, good management, good mix of veteran and younger guys. UECL much more Hajduk's 'speed' and they should get close to/make it to the groups. I thought last season was pretty competitive betweent the top 4 but this year should be even better.

Kulenovic has turned down a loan move to Nottingham Forest and thus has been demoted to the Dinamo II team

U21 international Martin Erlic has attracted the interest of Fiorentina, Atalanta and Sassuolo. Interestingly one player tagged to replace him at Spezia is Nikola Katic

Would be a better move in my eyes than Milan.

A few more items Basic to Lazio seems near done around 10m fee.

Torino interested in Pjaca.

Sutalo to Hellas Verona but he’s linked to allot of bottom half type Serie A teams.

Mourinho wants to sign Perisic or in a swap between him and Florenzi (all this since Inter has refused to extend his contract), but there is also some interests from Tottenham, Arsenal and MU.

The gaffer on Alen

Birmingham City boss Lee Bowyer has all but closed the door on the potential of Alen Halilovic re-signing for the club this summer.

The Croatian playmaker played 17 times last season after signing on a free transfer until the end of the season, and he bagged the dramatic winner in the 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at St Andrew’s in February.

It was hoped that Halilovic and Blues might be able to come to some sort of agreement to extend his stay at the club, but Blues have grown frustrated by the player and his representatives for the lack of progress in those negotiations and so they moved to bring in Tahith Chong from Manchester United to fill that position in the side.

Rangers defender Niko Katic has no interest to leave Ibrox on loan this season in search of regular football and is “fully focused” on forcing his way into Steven Gerrard’s starting XI, according to a report.

The Rangers star has been linked with a temporary exit as he continues his return from a serious knee injury which has sidelined him since last summer but, according to Glasgow Live, Katic wants to fight for his place at Ibrox.

The defender missed the entirety of the Gers’ title-winning season but he clearly put the hours in the gym to bulk up his physique during his recovery from a cruciate ligament injury and several subsequent surgeries.

Loan move for Rangers star makes a lot of sense given competition for places

Serie A side Spezia are one of the clubs named as a potential destination for Katic if he was to go out on loan, and with a host of central defenders at Ibrox, it would make a lot of sense for him.

After missing an entire year of football through injury, Katic needs regular games this season to push on and continue his development – but the reality is he’s unlikely to play much for Rangers this season.

The Croatian’s injury forced the signing of Leon Balogun and the Nigerian international is ahead of Katic in the pecking order for a starting place now.

Connor Goldson is a surefire starter and Fil Helander is the most likely option to start alongside him, while there are still places to be found for George Edmundson and Jack Simpson.

While Katic will no doubt want to stay and fight for a place in the side when Champions League football comes around, sitting on the bench for most of the next 12 months won’t do his long-term Rangers career any good.

Attacking left back, decent player but a guy Dinamo signed for no reason (other than to prevent other HNL clubs to sign him I guess) and pretty much stashed him away, which is what Bjelica is now complaining about, funny enough he wasn't when he was manager of Dinamo

Zvonimir Sarlija, who has bounced around since his CSKA Moscow move, is set to join Panathinaikos
