Germany's preeminent footballing publication reports that VfB Stuttgart are preparing to sign 21-year-old Swiss international Leonidas Stergiou.
Kicker offers no information at present as to the nature of the transfer. The youngster maintains and estimated market worth of €3 million in the latest transfermarkt listings and remains under contract with his Swiss side through the end of the season. The fact that Stergiou sits on an expiring contract strongly suggests that Stuttgart will be purchasing him rather than taking him on loan.
Stuttgart began the 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign with a 5-0 rout of VfL Bochum earlier today. Dan-Axel Zagadou and newly anointed captain Waldemar Anton handled the clean sheet in central defense.
