The 26-year-old left back arrived at Stuttgart's winter training base in Alicante, Spain in the early hours of Tuesday morning and will be assessed by the club's medical team today.

"That was a long day and a long journey. Now I'm glad I'm here,'' Molinaro told the club's official website. "I look forward to the Bundesliga. Stuttgart are better than their current position in the table.''

Atletico Madrid had also been in talks to sign Molinaro but he will spend the remainder of the campaign in the Bundesliga.
