Adrian Stoian (born 11 February 1991 in Craiova) is a Romanian footballer who currently plays for Serie B side Crotone on loan from Chievo. He is a versatile midfielder.


Stoian starded his career at Gheorghe Popescu's football school, which he joined in 2006.[1]


In 2008 he joined Serie A team A.S. Roma.[2] He made his Serie A debut on 21 March 2009 against Juventus F.C. as a substitute for Mirko Vučinić in the last minutes of the game.[3]

Loan to Pescara[edit]

Stoian spent the 2010–11 season on loan at Pescara, but he didn't manage to impress due to an injury that sidelined him for good part of the year.[4]

Loan to Bari[edit]

On 5 August 2011 he joined A.S. Bari on a season long loan deal that bring teammates Alessandro Crescenzi and Simone Sini to the team too. In order to formalized the deal, Stoian also signed a new 3-year contract with €86,700 annual gross wage.[5]

In December, Stoian had a great game against Brescia, when he scored two goals in a 3–1 victory.[6] On 14 January 2012, he closed the scoring in the 2–0 victory against A.S. Varese.[7] On 11 March, Stoian brought his team the victory, with a last minute goal against Reggina Calcio.[8] He finished an impressive 2011–12 season scoring five goals from 31 games for Bari.[9]

On 22 June 2012, A.S. Bari activated a buy-out clause in his contract for €300K in co-ownership deal[10] and Stoian signed for them. A week later, Roma bought him back from Bari for a fee of €1 million.[11][12]


In the summer of 2012, after an excellent season in Serie B, Stoian joined Chievo Verona in another co-ownership deal for €500,000,[13][14] in a deal that involved Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley going the other way.[15]

His first goal in Serie A came on 31 October later that year, in a 2–0 home win against Pescara. It was also the first goal of Stoian for his new club.[16]

International career[edit]

Stoian made his international debut against Trinidad & Tobago, playing the last ten minutes of a friendly game on 4 June 2013.[17]
