NK Osijek have made a significant signing after recruiting striker Goran Ljubojevic, who has recently been playing regularly with AIK Stockholm. 27 year old will take the place of Vedran Niksic who joined Hungarian side Gyor. Powerful ex Croatian Under 21 international frontman Ljubojevic brings a wealth of experience from his time with Osijek, Dinamo, Racing Genk and NK Zagreb. Ljubojevic, will fight for a place alongside Ivan Milicevic, Josip Barisic and Anton Maglica.

Osijek are hoping Ljubojevic's arrival will encourage Marko Babic to join up who is currently a free agent after leaving Real Zaragoza. Jurica Vranjes has also been mentioned, who is still contracted to Werder Bremen till the end of the season. Whilst Ljubojevic has left Scandanavia, Domagoj Abramovic has returned to Finnish club Inter Turku after playing in the Greek second Division with Olympiakos Volos and Pierikos. Whilst Abramovic leaves Greece, Dino Drpic has finally suited up to a new club in the Superliga with AEK Athens. The 29 year old Croatian international has been without a employer for 12 months since leaving Karlsruhre.

Free agents Ivan Rodic, Gordan Golik, Ivan Bosnjak, Tomislav Vranjic and Marko Maric are still going to waste. Bosnjak and Vranjic had been training with Cibalia. Maric meanwhile is a former player of NK Zagreb, whilst Golik was linked with Varazdin as a replacement for Josip Brezovec. It is thought however Varazdin needed to make another selling to make room for his arrival. Lokomotiva meanwhile have sent Marko Simic on loan to Radnik Sesvete.
