Serbian powerhouse Radojevic boosts Wolves’ attacking options

Worcester Editorial 14th Jan, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

GIANT forward Dejan Radojevic will bring a touch of dynamism to Worcester Wolves according to head coach Paul James.

The 6ft 11in Serbian arrived in the city on Monday and is set to make his debut this weekend as Wolves travel to Bristol Flyers in the BBL Championship followed by Durham Wildcats in the Trophy.

The 25-year-old has a wealth of European experience having made his debut with KP Slovan Ljubljana and then played in the Euro Cup for Olimpija Ljubljana, where he also enjoyed Slovenian National Cup success in 2010.

Since then, he has played for French teams Challans and Pays d’Onne where he established a great reputation for his versatile and explosive approach.

Radojevic, who holds a Slovenian passport which allows him to make up the final EU spot the Wolves have available, said: “I have spent time researching the BBL and the Worcester Wolves and am very excited to be joining such an ambitious and respected club at this exciting stage of the season.

“I will do all that I can to help the Wolves to achieve their goals and cannot wait to be a part of the team.”

The club is hoping paperwork to complete his signing will be finished before the weekend’s double-header.

Head coach James said: “It would have been easy to rush to find a replacement for the forward position.

“We have looked at many players in the past eight weeks and finally we have found a player who we believe will make a dynamic and effective contribution to our team.

“Dejan could become a big favourite with our Wolves fans.”
