Stuttgart sign Camoranesi

BERLIN - VfB Stuttgart have signed former Italy World Cup winner Mauro Camoranesi from Juventus for one year with an option to renew, the Bundesliga club said on Tuesday.

Hours before the end of the transfer window, Stuttgart, who are competing in the Europa League, said they had finally clinched a deal for the Argentina-born midfielder, who won the 2006 World Cup with Italy.

They said neither club would reveal any more details of the transfer of the 33-year-old, who has been hit by injuries in the past two years.

Stuttgart are in desperate need of reinforcement after failing to win any points in their first two league games.
