Deranja sidelined for season

HNK Hajduk Split striker Zvonimir Deranja is set to miss the most of the season through injury.

HNK Hajduk Split striker Zvonimir Deranja is set to miss the majority of the season having undergone surgery on a serious knee injury.

Early injury
Deranja, who began the season as Hajduk captain, was substituted 24 minutes into the Croatian club's second league game of the campaign - a 4-1 defeat at the hands of NK Inker Zaprešic on 8 August - after damaging his left knee.

Long absence
Early medical opinions suggested rest and recuperation would be sufficient but the club resorted to surgery after a month and the 23-year-old, who has 49 league goals to his name, is unlikely to return to training until March at the earliest.
