VfB Stuttgart have agreed terms with FC Zürich on the transfer of Anto Grgic. The 19-year-old Swiss youngster has signed a deal with VfB Stuttgart until June 30th, 2020 and will don the number eight jersey with the infamous red hoop. Details of the transfer remain undisclosed.
Anto Grgic has been educated at the FC Zürich youth academy since 2009 and signed his first professional deal with the club last year. Since then, the 1,88 meter tall central midfielder has made 24 Swiss Super League appearances for Zürich, scoring four goals. In the Swiss junior national teams (U15 through U20), Anto Grgic has made 27 appearances and scored six goals.
Jan Schindelmeiser, Sporting Director at VfB Stuttgart:
"VfB have had an eye on the progress of Anto Grgic for over a year and made contact with him early on in the proceedings. We have signed a promising central midfielder, with the potential for development, who will provide us with a great deal of joy in the future."
"I am delighted to be here. VfB is a club steeped in tradition and with a huge fan base. I hope to quickly come to terms with football in Germany and play my part in helping the team to achieve its goals."
