there are a couple of Serbian players coming over to England next spring for a visit  and one in particular is a big strong forward  from Belgrade only 21 year old who from video clips looks a good prospect for a decent championship side .

 instead of looking to the other side of the world I recon places like Serbia will provide some good players in years to come and apart from not costing as much  it will also add to the development of the players which would transfer back to there own countries

im not a big fan of bringing in aussies but I think theres a case to bring players over from developing countries to further there game

Back at Dorcol i think. Pesic and another Serbian lad played last season at Lyon in the French second division.

Problem is Serbia not in the EU and players may have problems getting a visa especially if they are looking for a contract at a pro club

not a clue   but a guy called Stefan Nedeljkovic  will be coming over in march   he is 21 year old  6ft 5inch tall  weighs 120 kilo  and is a barnstorming backrower  with the best club in Serbia  I would be amazed if no club picks him up  and 2 west Yorkshire championship  clubs have asked him to visit them  he is also coming over with a couple of other young players. 

so with luck he will impress

It would be highly unlikely that they would be able to get a visa to play sport at a professional level; it might be possible to get a visa as a sports visitor where they are not allowed to be paid a wage but can receive expenses.

The requirement is to be internationally established at the highest level of their sport (ie participation in World Cups and major leagues), the examples quoted would come under Tier 2 of the points based system, the Serbians would either come under Tier 5 if a Championship side could show this requirement would be met, or would qualify as a sports visitor if playing for an amateur club.

well would playing in the armed foeces world cup count  and playing for the champions of there country which has been recognised the the international board although I thought Croatia was part of the EU in which case a Croatian passport would be enough   and with a grandparent from there easy enough to obtain

A Croatian passport would make all the difference, and would not need a visa at all.

We had Serbian player Nikola Vasic (Red Star) come play with us this past season. He was quite raw but had great size and strength. Looking forward too seeing how he progresses over the coming years

yep theres some players with potential in Serbia  big lads with pace  but as you say there a bit raw   but nothing that a good year with a decent club could not improve.  

did he go over to the usa on a student visa ?  I  am pretty sure he did from memory

He actually came over to work as a lifeguard for the summer (with 3 other Serbians) so I'm presuming it was a work visa. There was another Serbian player doing something similar down on Cape Cod (About a 2 hour drive) who was hoping to come to some training sessions but never actually made it.

Lots of interest from Serbia of coming to Manchester. This is very encouraging.

yes and junior development is coming along great strides with involvement in schools planned  as well.

 

with luck the break into central Europe will  push from Serbia through the rest of the region  as theres already games been played in hungary and several other countries
