Berlin, Aug 11 - German Bundesliga side Stuttgart have signed Groningen midfielder Filip Kostic.

The 21-year-old Serbian arrival inked a contract until June 2019 and received the jersey number 18, Stuttgart confirmed in an official statement Sunday, reports Xinhua.

We observed Filip Kostic for a long time. He is young, technically skilled and dangerous in front of the goal. With him we will be more variable in our offence, sporting director Fredi Bobic told the club's official homepage.

The midfielder joins from Dutch side Groningen where he played for two seasons. He scored 11 goals in 45 appearances.

I had a good time in Groningen but I wanted to join Stuttgart. Those responsible have put a lot of effort into my transfer. Now I am looking forward to this new task at Stuttgart in the Bundesliga, Kostic said.

Stuttgart finished the last Bundesliga season in 15th place, only five points away from the drop zone.
