Title challengers Sun Pegasus have further strengthened their squad with the arrival of midfielder Dario Damjanovic, a former Bosnia international who has featured in two World Cup qualifiers.

The 33-year-old, who had his first training session with his new club on Wednesday, said he wanted to help Sun Pegasus win trophies after they finished the last campaign empty-handed.

I am a man on a mission and always set high targets, so I am delighted to have joined a club that has the same values

"This is a new experience and a new life for me," said the 1.89-metre player, who can also play in central defence. "I will try my best and stay positive. I am a man on a mission and always set high targets, so I am delighted to have joined a club that has the same values."

Damjanovic has played in Hong Kong, with Hajduk Split of Croatia in the Lunar New Year Cup tournament in 2008. He was with Serbian Super League side Jagodina last season.

Damjanovic is another important summer signing by the big spenders, who have a budget of over HK$20 million for the new season in the inaugural Hong Kong Premier League.

Pegasus completed the signing of Romanian striker Petrisor Vionea early in July from Song Lam Nghe An in the Vietnamese V-League. The league's top scorer, Admir Rascic, has agreed to stay for another season, along with midfielder Aleksandar Randelovic.
