Tan has been in talks since earlier in the summer with Sarajevo, who are now official partners of the Premier League outfit.

"We also want to build a football academy that will attract the most talented players from all Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"We will offer them excellent conditions for training and will enable them to play in one of the best leagues in the world.

"Bosnia is full of talents. We have already concluded an agreement on cooperation between the two clubs.
