He has dual citizenship, Bosnian and Dutch.
Medunjanin was born in Sarajevo. Due to the Bosnian War in 1992, he moved to the Netherlands at the age of seven with his mother and sister, whilst his father was unable to leave, later losing his life.
Medunjanin made his Eredivisie debut on 20 February 2005 with AZ Alkmaar, but opportunities were scarce during his three-year spell at the club. In 2006–07, he was loaned to Sparta Rotterdam, being essential as the modest outfit finished 13th in the season, with seven league goals.
In June 2010, after Valladolid's relegation – during the season, he scored all of his five La Liga goals as a late substitute – Medunjanin signed a four-year contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv F.C. of Israel for €1.8 million. On 15 July he made his official debut for the club, in a UEFA Europa League second qualifying round against FK Mogren, and scored in a 2–0 home win.
Medunjanin was part of the Dutch U-21 team that won the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. In 2007, he was called up by coach Foppe de Haan to be part of his squad for the 2007 edition, held in the Netherlands; the Dutch went on to retain their 2006 title by beating Serbia 4–1 in the final, and in the process qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
In a 2009 interview, Medunjanin expressed strong desire to play for his native Bosnia, as new FIFA rules would allow. In August of the same year, his paperwork for change of footballing citizenship was submitted to FIFA. On 31 October 2009, national coach Miroslav Blažević invited Medunjanin for the 2010 FIFA World Cup playoff games against Portugal. He made his debut – as a starter – in the decisive second leg, a 0–1 loss in Zenica (0–2 aggregate).
On 2 September 2011, Medunjanin scored his third international goal against Belarus, in a 2–0 away win, and added another the following month against Luxembourg (5–0, home), helping his native country to the second place in its group in the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign and the subsequent playoffs. Almost two years later he netted his fifth, contributing to a 5–0 away routing of Latvia for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
