Simunic signs for Dinamo Zagreb

German club Hoffenheim says Canberra-born Croatia midfielder Josip Simunic has agreed to transfer to Croatian football club Dinamo Zagreb.

Hoffenheim said on Wednesday, the last day of the transfer market, that the 33-year-old central defender would get more playing time in his homeland.

Hoffenheim manager Ernst Tanner said "we know of his quality, but we felt that a transfer was the best solution for all parties at this time."

Simunic played 43 Bundesliga games for Hoffenheim, after nine seasons with Hertha Berlin.

He grew up in Australia and started his career with National Soccer League side Melbourne Knights in 1995.

Simunic trained at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, but decided to play for Croatia, the country of his parents' birth, instead of Australia.

Simunic was sent off in Croatia's final 2006 World Cup match against the Socceroos in remarkable fashion, collecting three yellow cards.

The defender was booked in the 61st minute, earned another yellow card in the 90th minute, but was not sent off until three minutes later, when he was given a third yellow, this time followed by a red card.
