Mijo Caktaš (born 8 May 1992 in Split) is a Croatian football midfielder, currently playing for Hajduk Split in the Prva HNL.

Club career[edit]

A native of Dugopolje, Mijo Caktaš started training with his hometown club NK Dugopolje, moving to the NK Omladinac Vranjic youth team when he was 14. After two seasons there he returned to Dugopolje, debuting for the senior team in the 2008–09 season of the Treća HNL South, at only 16 years old, he drew the attention of Hajduk Split scouts.[1]

He was integrated in the Hajduk U19 team the following season. In summer 2011, he was sent to Dugopolje on loan, and his performances in the autumn Druga HNL leader earned him a call back to the Hajduk first team. In February 2012, he signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the club. He made his debut for the first team in a 1–1 draw against Istra 1961 on 25 February 2012.[2] The following month, he scored his first goal in Prva HNL in a 3–0 win against Rijeka and also provided two assists for Ante Vukušić.[3] In the next game, he scored the only goal in a 1–0 victory over Cibalia.[4]
