Pranjic set for Bayern switch

BERLIN - Bayern Munich are close to signing Croatia midfielder Danijel Pranjic from Dutch side SC Heerenveen, Bayern manager Uli Hoeness said on Thursday.

"We have agreed with the player but the negotiations with the club are ongoing so we cannot confirm the transfer 100 percent yet," Hoeness told club website.

Pranjic, 27, was on new Bayern coach Louis van Gaal's wish list.

"I will do my best to repay the trust shown in me by Van Gaal," he said.
