Club career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Đurđić started out at his hometown club Radnički Pirot, making his senior debut in 2004. He subsequently moved to Voždovac in the summer of 2006. In his debut season with the Zmajevi, Đurđić was the club's top scorer with 10 league goals, as they suffered relegation from the top flight of Serbian football. He spent another year and a half at the club, before moving abroad in the 2009 winter transfer window.

Haugesund[edit]

In March 2009, Đurđić joined Norwegian side Haugesund on a three-year deal.[1] He scored 10 league goals in his first season at the club, as they gained promotion to the Tippeligaen. In the following three seasons, Đurđić scored 36 league goals (12 each season). He scored a total of 57 goals during his tenure at Haugesund (including 11 cup goals).

Loan to Helsingborg[edit]

In August 2012, Đurđić was loaned to Swedish club Helsingborg. He joined them ahead of their 2012–13 UEFA Champions League qualifying tie against Celtic.[2] The original contract was to last until 15 January 2013 and included an option to purchase if desired. As well as signing this loan contract, Đurđić also extended his contract with Haugesund lasting until the end of 2014.

Until the end of the 2012 season, Đurđić scored 10 league goals from 11 appearances for Helsingborg. He also netted four goals in Group L of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League, as the club finished in third place. On 4 October 2012, Đurđić scored a brace in a 2–2 home draw with Twente.[3] He subsequently scored his side's first goal in a 2–3 away loss against Hannover 96.[4] On 6 December 2012, Đurđić netted the opener in his team's 3–1 away win over Twente.[5]

On 2 February 2013, in his second Bundesliga game, Đurđić provided an assist to Felix Klaus and also scored an injury time winner away at Schalke 04.[6] He netted a total of five league goals until the end of the 2012–13 season, as the club finished bottom of the table and suffered relegation to the 2. Bundesliga.

After scoring a goal in the team's opener of the 2013–14 campaign, Đurđić torn his ACL in the league's third round, causing him to miss the majority of the season.[7] He made his return on 2 March 2014, coming on as a substitute in a 3–2 home league win over FSV Frankfurt.

Loan to Fortuna Düsseldorf[edit]

On 1 February 2016, Đurđić was loaned to Fortuna Düsseldorf until the end of the 2015–16 season.[13] He scored two goals from 12 appearances in the process, as the club avoided relegation from the 2. Bundesliga.

Randers[edit]

In January 2017, Đurđić moved to Danish club Randers.[16] His debut at the club would be postponed due to an injury, that kept him sidelined for two months.[17] Đurđić made his first competitive appearance in a 0–1 loss against Odense BK on 18 April.[18]

Hammarby[edit]

On 15 March 2018, Đurđić joined Hammarby IF, the third Swedish club in his career.

He subsequently signed a new three and half-year deal with the side on 2 July. [20] On 27 July 2019 he scored his first hat-trick with the club in a 6-1 win away against AFC Eskilstuna.
