Croatian professional footballer, Alen Halilovic, a former attacking midfielder for EPL club Birmingham City is itching to get started again with the club.
The 24 year old has once been regarded as one of the brightest prospects of European football and he was snapped up from Dinamo Zagreb by LaLiga giants Barca in 2014.
He however, spent most of his time with Barca’s B side and was shipped on Loan to sporting Gijon. He joined Hamburg two years after his arrival at Camp Nou.
The move to Germany did not work out particularly well for Halilovic. After spending a season with Las Palmas on loan, he was signed by Serie A side Milan a couple of years ago.
Halilovic is now set to embark on a new venture with Championship side Birmingham in English football’s second tier.
Halilovic excitedly took to his Twitter to say he was very happy. “Honoured and extremely happy to be here! Looking forward to getting started! Keep Right On!
Announcing the signing, Birmingham took to their official website to post: “[The] Blues have completed the signing of highly rated Croatian international, Alen Halilovic, on a short-term contract.”
“The attacking midfielder joins until June 2021 having left Italian giants, AC Milan, when his contract expired last month.”
“Halilovic will link up with fellow countryman Ivan Sunjic, having been touted as one of Croatia’s most promising stars.”
“At just 24 years old, the talented technician has already been snapped up by the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan, and will join Blues aiming to fulfil his undoubted potential.”
