The Bundesliga outfit have confirmed today that the Greek defender has signed for West Ham United.
"'Dinos' is not one to go hiding. He’s a leader and an inspiration to others, particularly when things get tough and tricky. His uncompromising, athletic style of play has caught the eye at home and abroad. Both 'Dinos' and everyone at VfB can be very proud of his development into a Greek international and a highly sought-after player across the continent," said VfB Stuttgart sporting director Fabian Wohlgemuth on the former Arsenal player's move to England.
"'Dinos' was eager to seize the opportunity to return to the Premier League and he informed us of his wishes. There are also obvious financial incentives related to the move which led to us accepting the transfer. We thank Dinos sincerely for his unwavering commitment while at VfB and wish him all the best for the future, both in his private life and on the pitch."
