Ivan Paurevic, Huddersfield Town’s new signing, has played top-flight football in both Germany and Russia.

The former Croatian Under 21 midfielder, who worked under David Wagner in Borussia Dortmund’s second string, winning promotion to the German third tier in 2012, had two seasons at Fortuna Dusseldorf before joining Russian club FC Ufa on a three-year contract in 2014.

The 6f 5in Rot-Weiss Essen product made four Bundesliga appearances for Dusseldorf, who signed him from Dortmund in 2012.

He was red carded in his debut away to Dortmund’s first team, but Fortuna still managed to claim a 1-1 draw.

Paurevic, 24, has been a far more regular performer in Russia, making 57 appearances and scoring five goals.

Ufa is the capital city of the Republic of Bashkortostan, located between the Volga river and Ural mountains in the South-West of the country.

FC Ufa were established in 2010, with former Manchester United and Rangers winger Andrei Kanchelskis their first coach.

Having begun in the third tier of the Russian football system, they were promoted to the Premier League in 2014, after which Paurevic was recruited.

Ufa have finished 12th in the 16-team division in each of the last two seasons, therefore avoiding involvement in the relegation play-offs.

CSKA Moscow are this season’s champions.

His arrival gives Wagner four options for the anchor midfield slots in his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, the others being Dean Whitehead, Jonathan Hogg and Philip Billing.

Town have already signed Oldham Athletic keeper Joel Coleman, German defenders Michael Hefele and Chris Lowe and Wolves forward Rajiv van La Parra.
