JURICA VRANJES is expected to join Hajduk Split on loan after a less than successful spell at Bayer Leverkusen.
The Croatian international midfielder was tipped for stardom on arriving at the BayArnea in December 1999 but has found life hard in North Germany and his 13 Bundesliga appearances so far have seen him withdrawn on nine occasions.
Hadjuk are poised to take the 22-year-old on a three month loan from Bayer as the player looks to rediscover the form and confidence that had the big-guns in Europe scrambling for his signature.
