Miha Mevlja (born 12 June 1990) is a Slovenian professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for Sochi.

Club career

Mevlja first began his career in football with ND Gorica where he eventually spent four years with the first-team. His time with Gorica was largely unsuccessful as the team's positing in the domestic league progressively dropped and in the Slovenian Cup the club went out at the quarter-final stage in each of his four years. In the summer of 2013 Mevlja joined FC Lausanne-Sport on a free transfer, his first club abroad, and competed in the Swiss Super League after signing a two-year contract.[1]

On 31 August 2017, he signed a four-year contract with FC Zenit St. Petersburg.[2] On 21 February 2019, he returned to FC Rostov on loan.[3]

On 2 September 2019, he signed a two-year contract with PFC Sochi.[4]
