Transfer rumour: Milos Dimitrijevic to Sydney FC

The Serbian midfielder has completed a medical, with a view to signing until the end of the current Hyundai A-League season.

Sydney FC look set to add to their Serbian ranks with the signing of former Serbia youth international, Milos Dimitrijevic.

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that Sydney FC are keen to sign Dimitrijevic for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League season.

Dimitrijevic is a 29-year-old midfielder, raised in France. He played for Nantes and Grenoble in France, before returning to his country of birth with Rad Belgrade.

His performances there earned him a move to Italian Serie A side, Chievo, before eventually making his way home to Red Star Belgrade. After two seasons, Dimitrijevic walked away from the game and he hasn't played since April.

He would join Nikola Petkovic and Ranko Despotovic as Sydney FC's resident Serbians.

Petkovic has been one of Sydney FC's best players this season after arriving shortly before the start of the season, whilst Despotovic's mid-season arrival has had an immediate impact. The forward has scored four goals in seven appearances.

Dimitrijevic has already completed a medical at the Sky Blues, but coach Frank Farina would need to offload one of their existing foreign players in order to fit the midfielder in to their currently full roster.

"He's played some for some big clubs in Europe and that's a good sign of his pedigree," Sydney FC CEO Tony Pignata told Fairfax Media.

"He's already done his medical at training this morning.”

“While he's a free agent we simply don't have a spot for him right at this time,” Pignata added.

“I said that to Milos' agent and he said that he was still happy to come over and trial with us, which is great. So we'll see what can be done about freeing up a position on our list.”
