Croatian champions GNK Dinamo Zagreb have confirmed the signing of Bosnian attacking-midfielder Said Husejinovic from FK Sarajevo.

The fee was not disclosed, but the Croatian media have speculated that Dinamo paid around €200,000 to secure the 24-year-old's signature.

Husejinovic spent three seasons in Bundesliga, taking in spells with Werder Bremen and Kaiserslautern. He failed to settle at either club, and has made the move in a bid to get his career back on track.

The combative midfielder was signed by Werder Bremen at the age of just 19 from Bosnian club Sloboda Tuzla for a fee of €900,000.

Dinamo Zagreb's Sporting Director, Zoran Mamic, says that Husejinovic is just the type of player they where looking for, and is excited by the players' potential.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "He is a fast winger, is good in 'one-on-ones' and the type of player we were searching for."

Husejinovic, who has signed a five-year contract with Dinamo, was equally as delighted with the transfer.

He added: "I had offers from other clubs but when I heard Dinamo were interested - I had no more doubts.

"Dinamo is the biggest club in this part of Europe, dominant in Croatia and a participant of the Champions League and it's an honour to be here."

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has just one international cap to his name, which came back in 2007 as he played 64 minutes in a friendly fixture.
