Official: Club Brugge Beat Juventus To Signing Of Stefan Scepovic From OFK Belgrade

The Serbian youngster has decided to join Club Brugge...
Belgian powerhouse Club Brugge have confirmed the capture of young attacker Stefan Scepovic from Serbian outfit OFK Belgrade for an undisclosed fee. The striker has signed a three-year deal with his new side.

Brugge were in the market for attacking reinforcements due to the departure of Wesley Sonck and head coach Adrie Koster sees the 20-year-old Scepovic as the perfect addition to his squad.

Scepovic came through the ranks of the OFK Belgrade youth academy and also played at Mladi Radnik and FK Sopot before joining Sampdoria in a one-year loan deal last summer. The young attacker failed to make an impact at the Serie A side though and Samp opted not to sign him on a permanent basis.

New Juventus coach and former Doria boss Luigi Del Neri was reportedly eager to lure the Serbia under-21 star to the Turin side, but Scepovic has now opted to join Brugge instead.

"I was really flattered when I heard about the interest of Club Brugge. I've them play in the Europa League last term. Club are a big club and I'm very happy with this transfer," said Scepovic on the Club Brugge website.
