Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Koljić started playing football at a local club, NK Ključ. However, he debuted as a professional playing for Slovenian club Triglav in 2013. Due to lack of first-team football, he returned to his homeland and signed with Krupa in July 2014.[2] In February 2015, he moved to Borac Banja Luka.[3] On 25 April 2015, Koljić scored his first professional goal, in a draw against Radnik Bijeljina.[4] About a year later, he returned to Krupa.[5]

On 29 November 2017, Koljić scored his first career hat-trick, in a cup game against Rudar Prijedor.[6]

In February 2018, Koljić was loaned to Polish club Lech Poznań until June, with an option to make the transfer permanent.[7] During the loan he suffered a serious knee injury, which kept him out of action for over two months, and Lech Poznań decided not to exercise their buy option.[8]

Universitatea CraiovaEdit

On 31 August 2018, Koljić penned a three-year deal with the option of another year with Romanian side Universitatea Craiova for an undisclosed transfer fee.[9] The following day, he scored on his competitive debut for the club in a 3–0 win against Dinamo București.[10]

International careerEdit

Koljić received first call-up for Bosnia and Herzegovina in January 2018, for friendly games against United States and Mexico.[11] He debuted on 28 January in a goalless draw against former.[12]
