Croatia international Bosko Balaban has returned to Dinamo Zagreb on a three-year contract, leaving Belgium's FC Brugge.
The Croatian club announced the transfer on its Web site Thursday, but did not disclose financial details.
The 28-year-old striker transferred to Brugge in 2003 from Aston Villa. He played for Dinamo in 2000-2001 and again on loan from Aston Villa in 2003.
Balaban has scored 10 goals in 33 matches for Croatia.
The remarks from the Pope came as "a very strong step towards degradation," "given the rather massive nature of homosexuality" among the Catholic clergy.
