Skysports.com understands former Portsmouth defender Dusko Tosic is set to snub interest from England to join Red Star Belgrade.

Tosic is available on a free transfer after his registration at Portsmouth was withheld by the Premier League.

Portsmouth signed Tosic as a free agent in February, but due to the club's financial plight the Premier League stopped the club from securing his services.

The defender had a spell on loan at Queens Park Rangers last season and he impressed at Loftus Road.

QPR and Leeds expressed an interest in signing Tosic, but Red Star have stolen a march on the English duo by luring him back to Serbia.

Tosic is believed to have agreed a one-year deal at Red Star with the lure of playing in Europe next season too good to turn down.
