Stuttgart sign Greece international forward


VfB Stuttgart have completed the signing of forward Anastasios Donis from Serie A Champions Juventus on a four-year deal.

The Greece international graduated from the Italian giants academy in 2014 but rose to prominence last season with fruitful spell with Ligue 1 surprise packaged OGC Nice.

His five goals in 18 appearances convinced the newly promoted Bundeliga side to launch a €4 million bid for the 20-year-old who subsequently agreed to leave the Allianz Stadium.

"I am very happy – today is a very important day for me. VfB is a massive club, steeped in tradition and with exceptional fans," the versatile forward told the club's website.

"I am very happy to be here and I will give my all to help the team and play my part in us having a good Bundesliga season."

Stuttgart Sporting Director Jan Schindelmeiser admitted the delight of the 2. Bundesliga champions of securing the highly-rated prospect.

"Anastasios enjoyed an excellent sporting education with Juventus Turin," he said. "He can play wide on the wings or centrally as a striker.

"Considering his style of play and mentality, he is very well suited to our team."
