Hajduk Split will once again profit from a surprise sale this week after their Bosnian international central defender Boris Pandza signed for KV Mechelen for £350,000. Pandza's exit means Hajduk have now successfully cut excessive numbers within their squad, leaving them with four centre backs who they can rotate during the season. The fourth Matej Jonjic also now has a good chance to step in, alongside Hjorve Vejic, Jurica Buljat and Mario Maloca. Hajduk need only to decide the future of Ante Aracic, who is likely to be released. Senijad Ibricic could also transfer, but Hajduk will enter the transfer market for a striker should that scenario occur. Hajduk will also allow Toni Pezo to join Zadar this week.

Elsewhere Dario Zahora has gone on trial with Hungarian side Debrecen. The team that last season qualified for the Champions League will make a decision on the 28 year old in a weeks time, leaving other interested parties such as Istra Pula 1961 to sit and wait. Denis Glavina has also gone on trial at Polish club Arka Grdyia and has thus far impressed and is expected to sign a contract this week after being released by Poltava in the Ukraine. Ante Rozic is also set to sign from Sedan. Strasbourg meanwhile have signed the 23 year old striker Igor Hajduk. The player who shares his surname with the famous Croatian football club scored 20 goals for HNL3 side Gorica last season.
