Former Dinamo Zagreb striker Dario Zahora has arrived in Israel to join up with Bnei Sakhnin. The 28 year old ex Croatia Under 21 player has been a free agent since terminated his contract with Norwegian side Rosenborg.

Zahora has a impressive goalscoring history in Croatia and Slovenia, however he arrives in Israel in the midst of a dispute between coach Yuval Naim and President Hassan Abu Saleh about his signing. Naim claims not to have the approved the signing, but has since been removed from his position for numerous reasons.

Zahora's hunt for a new club had been long running with HNK Rijeka, Istra Pula and Debrecen all closely linked with him. Zahora's switch to Israel however could prove his best decision which could earn him a move to a stronger club in the league in future. Meanwhile, Jurica Vranjes says he may sit at Werder Bremen if a deal with Hajduk Split is not agreed. Mario Galinovic is on the verge of joining Tomislav Sokota at OA Kavala.
