Josip Radosevic nears Rijeka loan

After a tug of war between player and club over where he would go on loan, Napoli have relented and it looks like Radosevic is headed to Croatia

It looks like Josip Radosevic is finally getting his loan, and even to his preferred destination. After almost two days of player and club going back and forth on where Radosevic would go on loan for the remainder of the season, it looks fairly set that the Croatian midfielder will be heading to Croatian club HNK Rijeka.

It seems like a very good move for Radosevic: he'll be playing for a team hoping to make a title push, and will very likely be a major part of their side moving forward, especially after their squad has been juggled around a bit this month thanks to departures. The 20 year old Croatian international is in dire need of regular playing time after getting just one substitute appearance this season in Naples and being regularly left out of the matchday squad, even when there was room for him.

With Radosevic qualifying as a club-trained player starting next season and having very good potential in midfield, this is a loan well worth close tracking for Napoli fans. Hopefully it all works out for the best, because he could be a key figure in Napoli's future.
