Former Croatia international Marko Babic has become the latest player to be made a free agent after another disappointing episode in Spain's Premira Liga with Real Zaragoza. Babic was a starter in the Croatian national team that impressed in the 2006 World Cup, but has seen his stock fall astronomically since giving up his place at Bayer Leverkusen for Real Betis.

Babic, however found himself behind Mark Gonzalez and Edu in the pecking order and saw little action. By the time Babic was released two seasons ago he was out of match practice which showed when he turned out for six months with Hertha Berlin.

Rather than stay in Germany, Babic went back to Spain last summer with newly promoted Zaragoza and again found himself out on the bench. Babic this week agreed to terminate his contract and will search for a new club. NK Osijek stated their desire to see him back in Croatia. However it would seem Babic could gain interest from Turkey, Austria or Greece. Babic, has however recently opened a football school in his hometown Osijek and may listen to any offer.
