Ivan Vargic has joined Slovenian Second League side FC Koper on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has made just three appearances overall for the Biancocelesti: one in the Serie A in the 2016/17 season and two in the UEFA Europa League in 2017/18. At the start of 2018, he was sent on loan to Cyprus to play for Anorthosis Famagosta for a year; this season he has been sidelined from the squad. This will be an early farewell for the Croatian goalkeeper; his contract expires on June 30th, 2020. Below, the official statement from the club.

“S.S. Lazio announces that it has temporarily transferred, until 30/06/2020, the right to the sports performances of the footballer Ivan Vargic to Slovenian club F.C. Koper.”

FC Koper currently sit in the first place in the Slovenian Second League. They have 43 points from 19 matches thus far.
