Zoltan Stieber: Talented winger signs for Bundesliga new boys
Bundesliga new boys SpVgg Greuther Furth have signed talented Hungarian international Zoltan Stieber from Mainz.
The 23-year-old winger spent time with the Aston Villa Academy before being sent out on loan to Yeovil Town in 2008.
He then joined German club TuS Koblenz before moving onto second division outfit Alemannia Aachen and then moving up a division to Mainz the following season.
And after a successful campaign at the Coface Arena, Stieber was quickly snapped up by the Cloverleaves with both parties agreeing a deal for the player in March.
Stieber has signed a four year contract with the O-Fives for a reported fee in the region of £550,000.
SpVgg Greuther Furth chairman Helmut Hack told the club's official website: "With the signature of Zoltan Stieber, we have captured our ideal solution (for the left wing)."
Meanwhile, Stieber said: "I like to join SpVgg Greuther Furth because they are playing a great style of attacking football and I am able to show people I am a good Bundesliga player."
