Stuttgart snap up Hlousek

Stuttgart have wrapped up a deal for Adam Hlousek, taking him from Nurnberg following their relegation out of the Bundesliga.

The Czech Republic international joins for an undisclosed fee and has penned a four-year contract with his new employers.

Hlousek had just 12 months left to run on his deal at Nurnberg and was not expected to stay on after they lost their top flight status.

Stuttgart are convinced that the 25-year-old winger will prove to be a shrewd investment, with general manager Fredi Bobic delighted to have completed one piece of early transfer business.

He told the club's official website: "We have signed Adam Hlousek, he has established himself as a Bundesliga player in the past season and he has international experience at the top level.

"He is a good addition to our squad as he will bring new life to our play on the left wing."

Hlousek added: "Stuttgart are a top club.

"After two good years with Nurnberg I am now looking forward to playing for Stuttgart. I want to help the club achieve good results."
