Stuttgart have bolstered their squad ahead of the new season with the signing of striker Marko Maletic from FC Utrecht.

The 18-year-old had come through the youth ranks at De Graafschap before joining Utrecht, and his performances have seen him tipped for a bright future.

An undisclosed fee has been agreed between the clubs for the Bosnia-Herzegovina youth international, with Maletic penning a deal to keep him at Stuttgart until June 2015.

Stuttgart general manager Fredi Bobic told the club's official website: "We have completed the signature of Marko Maletic, he joins our club from FC Utrecht."

Jurgen Kramny, a member of the Stuttgart coaching team, added: "Marko is a young prospect with great goalscoring skills we are out to develop further.

"We are out to hand him a proper beginning to his life at this club."
