"I have had a match with him and he also said that I would not hesitate. I knew Zalgiris club a long time ago, it is a team that trophies and plays in Europe. It would be fun to compete against Zalgiris in the UEFA Champions League in the future."

The highly-rated midfielder has previously played for BA United, Serbian teams Jagodina and Radnik Surdulica.

He was part of the Black Starlets team from 2012 to 2013 and also played for the Black Satellites in 2014.
