Niko Kranjcar has won a poll on Vital Pompey, becoming the player most Pompey fans are looking forward to seeing.
Niko Kranjcar was born August 13, 1984 in Vienna, Austria.
Kranjčar has been part of the Croatian national Under-16, -17, -19 and -21 teams before advancing to the national team of which he is currently part of.
His manager has said, 'Kranjcar has a great feeling for the ball and great understanding of the game. Few players in the world have that virtue'.
Kranjcar spent most of his youth playing for Dinamo Zagreb, later as a captain, but then in early 2005, after a disagreement with the management, made a surprise transfer to Dinamo's biggest rival, Hajduk.
His transfer was probably the biggest sport news of the year in Croatia. Niko was chosen for 'Young gun firing for World Cup glory' along with some of the greatest talents in the world such as Leo Messi, Lukas Podolski and Muntari.
In August 2006 Kranjcar has been linked with a move to Rennes for 2.5 million pounds, Hajduk has rejected that offer and now Portsmouth will complete a deal for the player (3.5 million)
The player has scored 30 goals from 124 appearances from midfield
He has made 24 appearances for Croatia scoring 3 goals
