No contract details have been revealed for the 22-year-old former FK Zeta centre-back, who holds a Bulgarian passport but represented Montenegro at Under-21 level. Udinese general manager Pietro Leonardi said: "Vujadinović is the right player to complete our defensive line, given the various competitions the squad will be in this season." Having finished seventh in Serie A last term, Udinese have already recruited Antonio Langella and Fernando Tissone from Atalanta BC, Giovanni Pasquale from AS Livorno Calcio, Alexis Alejandro Sánchez from CA River Plate, and Dušan Basta from FK Crvena Zvezda. They kick off their UEFA Cup campaign in the first round.
