BERLIN, June 22 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Croatia midfielder Danijel Pranjic from SC Heerenveen, the German club said on Monday.

Pranjic, 27, has won 22 caps for his country and played in last year’s European championship. He scored 16 goals in 30 matches for his Dutch club last season.

“Pranjic is a versatile player who was high on the wish list of our new coach Louis van Gaal,” Bayern General Director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club website (www.fcbayern.de).
