Kalik, who spent last season on loan from Hajduk with Sydney FC, has joined Croatian top flight club Rudes on another season-long loan.

The 20-year-old debuted for Rudes in Friday night's 1-1 draw with champions Dinamo Zagreb, playing the full game.

Kalik had joined Hajduk from Central Coast in February 2016 on loan, before signing a permanent deal in May 2016.

The Sydney-born youngster had impressed in 11 first-team appearances in the 2015-16 season but has since struggled for opportunities.

Meanwhile, Hajduk have also confirmed Deni Juric, the brother of Socceroos striker Tomi, has been released.

Australia youth international Juric joined Hajduk in 2016 on a two-year deal but was unable to push into the first-team despite scoring at lower levels.
