Nikola Petković (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Петковић; born 28 March 1986) is a Serbian footballer[1] who plays for Yanbian Funde in the China League One.

Club career[edit]

Petković began his career with FK Vojvodina with which he played excellently in the 2006-07 Serbian SuperLiga season. Foreign clubs became interested in his services and he subsequently signed for Gençlerbirliği S.K., where he got less playing time and was loaned to two different clubs. In the summer of 2009, he signed with Eintracht Frankfurt, but again only managed to play on an infrequent basis and was loaned out to FC Tom Tomsk and Al-Ahli (Jeddah) before coming to sign for Red Star Belgrade in 2011.

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

Petković signed a two-year contract with Red Star Belgrade on the last day of the summer 2011 transfer window.[2]

Sydney FC[edit]

On 19 September 2013, Sydney FC announced that they had completed their squad for the 2013/14 season by signing Petković on a 1-year deal.[3] After completing the move, Sydney FC manager Frank Farina stated: "I am expecting big things from him this season and believe he will have a big influence on the squad." Petković made his debut for Sydney FC on 11 October 2013 at home to Newcastle Jets where Sydney FC won 2–0.

On 8 October 2014, Petković, along with teammate Saša Ognenovski were appointed Sydney FC's vice-captains for the 2014–15 A-League season.[4]

K.V.C. Westerlo[edit]

On 24 June, Petković signed with K.V.C. Westerlo due to homesickness.[5] Despite being contracted until 2017, Petkovic terminated his contract in January 2016 for personal reasons.[6]

Yanbian Fude[edit]

On 26 January 2016, Petković transferred to Yanbian Funde in the Chinese Super League.[7] He extended his contract with Yanbian on 10 February 2017.[8]
