Sparta break Czech transfer record for Stanciu - press

Romanian Nicolae Stanciu has become the most expensive player in Czech League history after signing for Sparta Prague for 4.6 million euros, according to local press.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who has scored six goals in 19 international appearances, joins from Belgians Anderlecht and has signed a three-and-a-half year deal, Sparta said.

Stanciu, who played for Steaua Bucharest before moving to Anderlecht two years ago, is due to take the place of recently retired former Arsenal playmaker Tomas Rosicky.
