VfB complete Timo Gebhart deal

The transfer of midfielder Timo Gebhart from TSV Munich 1860 to VfB Stuttgart has been finalised. Both clubs agreed on transfer details for the talented 19 year old.


Gebhart, who played a major role in securing the U19 European Championship title with Germany this summer, will join the VfB squad for the beginning of training in Stuttgart on Sunday before heading off with the rest of the team to the training camp in Portugal.

VfB sport director Horst Heldt: "Timo passed the obligatory medical tests, which opened the way for the signing of the necessary paperwork."
Standing at 1,82m tall and weighing in at 76kg, Gebhart played 37 games in the second division for 1860 Munich, scoring five goals in that time. The versatile midfielder has signed a contact with Stuttgart until June 30th 2013. The youngsters most noted assets thus far have been his technical ability and electrifying pace.
"He had a number of interesting offers from other Bundesliga clubs but we are delighted that Timo opted for VfB," commented Horst Heldt.

Timo Gebhart: "It has always been my goal to play in the Bundesliga. I made the decision to move to VfB because they have put so much fate in young players. I wish to develop my strengths here in Stuttgart and, step-by-step, make my way into the first team."
