German defender Nowotny heading to Croatia

ZAGREB, July 19 (Reuters) - German international defender Jens Nowotny is set to join Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb, the Croatian club said on its website on Wednesday.

It said Nowotny, 32, and capped 47 times by Germany, would sign a contract on Sunday but gave no other details.

The former Bayer Leverkusen centre back was recalled to Germany's national side at the World Cup after being sidelined for two years.

Croatian daily Jutarnji List daily the contract was worth 'at least three million euros' and is for three years.

'I can only say that my team has been considerably reinforced now,' said Dinamo coach Josip Kuze.

Dinamo have won eight league titles since Croatia's independence in 1991, but have had little success in European competitions.
