Chongqing (China): Croatia international Goran Milovic has joined Chinese Super League (CSL) side Chongqing Lifan on a three-year deal, the football club said on Wednesday.

Being a strong defender, Milovic played for Hajduk Split of Croatia since 2012, scoring four goals in 115 matches, reports Xinhua.
