Manchester City has signed Croatian international defender Vedran Corluka from Dinamo Zagreb for undisclosed fee.
The 21-year-old is Sven-Goran Eriksson’s sixth signing and he has put pen to paper on a five year deal, subject to a work permit, after attracting interest from several Premier League clubs.
Capped nine times at international level, Vedran already has some first-hand knowledge of what to expect in the Premier League having played in Croatia’s 2-0 win over England last season as well as facing Arsenal in a Champions League qualifier last August.
Born in Bosnia & Herzegovina when it was still part of the former Yugoslavia, Vedran played over 60 times for Dinamo as well as gaining valuable loan experience at Inter Zapresic.
Well over six feet tall, Vedran can play either in central defence or at right back and is an extremely capable ball player.
