GREAT Eastern-Yeo's S-League side Balestier Khalsa on Tuesday unveiled Croatian striker Goran Ljubosevic as their star signing for the 2014 season.

The 30-year-old had previously played in the Uefa Champions League with Dinamo Zagreb, with further stints at Racing Club Genk, AIK Stockholm and St Gallen, among others.

"Last season was a relatively good year for Balestier and we are looking to improve performance on the pitch," club chairman S. Thavaneson said of the previous season, in which the Tigers finished fourth in the 12-team league and lifted the StarHub League Cup.

"But another of our main aims is to increase spectator interest in the league."
