STUTTGART, Germany (AP) - Stuttgart has signed Serbian forward Filip Kostic from Dutch club Groningen.

The Bundesliga club said late Saturday that the 21-year-old Kostic joined on a five-year contract. It gave no details of the transfer deal.

Serbia under-21 international Kostic was signed to replace Guinea winger Ibrahima Traore, who moved to Bundesliga rival Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Stuttgart narrowly escaped relegation last season and is hoping for a better performance this time under new coach Armin Veh, who led the club to the Bundesliga title in 2007, and returned to the team in the offseason.
