Official: Stuttgart loan Arsenal’s Konstantinos Mavropanos

VfB Stuttgart have announced the signing of centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos from Arsenal on a season-long loan.

The towering defender spent the second half of last season in the 2. Bundesliga with FC Nürnberg.

And next season he will step up to Germany’s top flight with newly-promoted Stuttgart.

VfB sporting director Sven Mislintat knows Mavropanos, 22, from his time at Arsenal and played a key role in the signing.

The former Greek under-21 international has made eight first team appearances for Arsenal.

Arsenal also confirmed that he has signed a new contract ahead of his next loan move.

The Gunners signed Mavropanos from PAS Giannina in January 2018.
