PRAGUE (AP) - Romania midfielder Nicolae Stanciu has completed a transfer from Anderlecht to Sparta Prague.

The Czech club says the 24-year-old Stanciu has signed a contract through the 2020-21 season.

The clubs have not published financial details but media estimate Sparta paid about 4.5 million euros ($5.5 million) for the playmaker, the highest transfer fee for a player coming to the Czech league.

Stanciu went to Anderlecht in 2016 but rarely started recently.

He has played 19 matches for Romania, scoring six goals.
