Transfer deadline passed with a number of players failing to secure moves to new clubs. Some news of deals may be known in the next 24 hours. However Darko Bodul is under threat of being left in Ajax Reserves as he was unable to secure his loan deal with Willem II.

Dino Drpic, meanwhile also will play a waiting game as no deal was made this week. Fortunately for the 28 year old defender his free agent status will work in his benefit and will in fact make him a more lucrative option to teams who can no longer purchase a contracted defender from another club. As long as Drpic remains off the pitch however he has no chance of playing with the Croatian national team.

At Hajduk Split, Galatasaray finally pulled out of their hunt for Senjad Ibricic after signing his fellow countryman Zjezdan Misimovic from Wolfsburg. Ahmad Sharbini will be increasingly uncomfortable with his status as Colombian forward Phil Jackson arrived. Similarly Kreso Ljubicic is out of the picture with Erwin Bulku, Srdjan Andric, Franko Andriasejvic, Dinko Trebotic, Marin Ljubijic and Mario Brkljaca leaving him no opportunity of getting into Hajduk's midfield.

One of the late transfers may involve another loan deal from Dinamo. Lokomotiva Zagreb may now be overcapacitated in attack, so only Karlovac can realistically take Andrej Kramaric on loan. Inter Zapresic meanwhile shelved interest in Luis Hilario Dodo after good form from Aleksandr Trajkovski during international break.

There is no news whatsoever surrounding defender Goran Sablic, who at 30 could be taking a break from the game due to injury problems. The same situation seems to fit Ivan Bosnjak, who has also experienced issues with injuries.
