Stuttgart - VfB Stuttgart have completed the signing of Czech international midfielder from relegated 1. FC Nürnberg.

The 25-year-old, who scored three goals in 28 Bundesliga appearances last season, has signed on the dotted line until 30 June 2018.

'New challenge'

"Stuttgart are one of the Bundesliga's top sides," Hlousek told the club's official website. "I had a good time in Nuremberg; now I'm looking forward to this new challenge and to helping Stuttgart climb back up the table."

The deal comes just hours after fellow Nürnberg midfielder Hakoto Masebe signed a two-year deal with Eintracht Frankfurt.
