Another Croatian striker is no longer on the market, as Bojan Vrucina was sent on loan to promoted Greek Superliga club Panaserrekos from Hapoel Tel Aviv. The transfer marks an excellant opporunity for the 26 year old to impress in a stronger league.
Vrucina's chances were limited in Hapoel Tel Aviv with the player making only 10 appearences since signing in January scoring 1 goal. He was a realistic recruit for Hajduk Split and Dinamo Zagreb who both require frontmen, but the Croatian elite will have to look elsewhere.
Dinamo desire Montenegrin Fatos Beciraj whilst Hajduk are awaiting Senijad Ibricic's transfer before being able to make any moves in the market. Any deal is unlikely to go through in time to be able to afford a swoop for Igor Budan who could leave Palermo as soon as next week for a host of Serie A options. Hajduk could yet turn to the Prva Liga where Zagreb's Ivan Kristanovic, Sibenik's Mehmad Alispahic and Osijek's Ivan Milicevic are impressing on a regular basis.
