Karlsruhe snap up Drpic

Croatian champions Dynamo Zagreb have agreed to loan defender Dino Drpic to German club Karlsruhe in a deal that could be made permanent.

"It is a loan, after which there is a possibility of a purchase," Dynamo vice president Zdravko Mamic was quoted as saying in the Sportske Novosti daily.

Karlsruhe had an option to sign Drpic at the end of the loan period at the end of the current season, said Mamic.

Dynamo suspended the 27-year-old earlier this month and put him on the transfer list due to behavioural issues.
