Stuttgart have signed Fiorentina midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic.

Kuzmanovic, who has signed a four-year deal with Stuttgart, had made a decent name for himself in Serie A, but his performances waned last term - although that did not worry coach Markus Babbel.

"Despite his young age, he already shows substantial international experience and so he will integrate himself quickly into our team," explained the former German international.
