The 25-year-old Slovenian free agent left back Tine Poklar is on tryout with the Norwegian champions Elverum HH.
After the Norwegian Champions League participant Elverum HH lost their main offensive player, the 29-year-old Serbian left back Luka Mitrovic, to the Slovenian club RK Gorenje Velenje at the end of last season, the club have been searching for a replacement.
Earlier this summer the Danish left back Kasper Kisum was their first pick, but he rejected the Norwegians. Instead Elverum have the 25-year-old free agent left back Tine Poklar on tryout. He trained with the team last evening.
Poklar started his career in the Slovenian club RK Cimos Koper, but has played the last 3 season with their league rivals RK Maribor Branik. He has played 38 caps for the youth national team of Slovenia.
