Hajduk's number 9 is one of the best players in Croatian football at this moment. He has been simply fantastic, and, realistically, it isn't just a blip of form, as some less educated European papers have been reporting.
No, Tomi Kiš has been, arguably, playing like this for the past three years. Granted, he's not been this
good... but it's hard to top what he's doing now. In fact... the only game Kiš hasn't found the net in was against Cibalia, in their second game of the season. And that's only because he was taken off with an injury after halftime.
The best part is that Kiš has just recently signed a new contract with Hajduk, keeping him at the club until 2020. Yes, Bendiš did need to shove a lot of money for Kiš and his agent to be happy, but the club is doing much better now... climbing into the upper echelon of richest clubs. So, giving Kiš 575 000 € a year isn't the end of the world... especially considering the money he would be making abroad. If anything, the poacher is being nice, and not asking for an absurd amount of money. Even his release clause is huge by Croatian standards. If any one club met it, it would smash the transfer record, when Luka Modri? joined Tottenham. It stands at 24.75 million euros.
In any case... Hajduk can look forward to several amazing seasons with Kiš up front. With the kind of skills that he has, and at only 21? If they can keep him, they may be able to do very well for themselves.
Hajduk, after a disastrous start to the season, are currently second in the Croatian First Division, with 19 points from 10 games. RNK Split are in the lead with 25, while Dinamo are in 9th place, with 8 points from 10 matches.
