Vedran Turkalj went through the ranks of Rijeka, becoming a Croatian youth international in 2005. He made his first team debut in the 2–0 home win against Pula In the end, he collected 8 appearances in the 2006–07 season, when he was still eligible to play for the U19 team. His progress was, however, marred by an injury leading to a foot operation, which caused him to miss most of the 2007–08 season. He spent two further seasons at the club, unable to fully break in the first team for similar reasons.
In the summer of 2010 he moved to the nearby Druga HNL team Pomorac Kostrena, becoming a firm first team fixture and helping the team to secure a third-place finish in the 2010–11 season and a second-place finish in the 2011–12 season. In the following seasons he became team captain as well, before moving to Solin in January 2014.
