Born in Zagreb, Croatia, the defender joined the Dinamo Zagreb academy in 2008 at 9 years of age. Coming up through the rank he made his debut in the 2016/16 season in a 1-1 draw with Osijek. He would also make his European debut in the same season coming on as a substitute in a win over Fola Esch in the second leg of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. He would make a total of 18 competitive appearances for the club picking up two major silverwares, the Croatian First League and the Croatian Cup. The following season he started becoming a more vital part of the first team, playing in 28 competitive games with 18 of them coming in the domestic competitions and a further 10 in Europe as Dinamo Zagreb qualified and competed in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, unfortunately his season was cut short due to injury. His final season at the club would resemble his first but this time around he was a first team regular, the defender made 25 league appearances as Dinamo Zagreb would once again complete a league and cup double in the 2017/18 season. On August 2018 Premier League outfits Leicester City acquired the services of the big man from Zagreb on a 5 year deal. He would be immediately sent on loan to Scottish powerhouse Celtic for the upcoming 2018/19 season.
