Savic is an exciting young defender from Montenegro. A centre-half by trade, he began his football career for BSK Borca in 2008 in the Serbian First League, aged 17. After an impressive debut season in which Borca won the division and gained promotion to the SuperLiga, Savic was scouted by several big European clubs â€Ã¢â‚¬Å“ particularly from England. He had a 10 day trial at Arsenal whom he agreed to sign with before the move fell through.
Following this disappointment, Savic stayed at Borca for the 2009-2010 season. He made the move to Partizan Belgrade in 2010, where he was given the number 15, and played a role in Partizan's SuperLiga and Cup double in 2010-2011, scoring once. During his time in Serbia, Savic represented Montenegro at various youth levels, making appearances for the U17, U19 and U21 sides.
He was called up to the national team for the first time in 2010, debuting in a friendly against Northern Ireland. He has been ever present for Montenegro since, and was a critical player for the team during the UEFA European Championships qualifying phase. He scored his first international goals against Albania in 2011.
Savic continued to garner the attention from bigger clubs in Europe, and in July 2011 he was purchased by Roberto Mancini at Manchester City for £6 million, retaining his number 15 from Partizan. Citing his age, potential ability and international experience, Savic signed a four-year contract and has embarked on his maiden campaign in England.
