After an impressive 2008–09 season with the newly promoted Sliven, on 24 June 2009 Stoyanov signed a 3-year contract with CSKA Sofia. On 30 July 2009, Stoyanov marked his official debut for the armymen by scoring the goal for the 1:0 home win against Northern Irish side Derry City F.C. in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.[2] On 9 August 2009, he scored a brace in the 5:0 away win against Lokomotiv Plovdiv in a league game.

On 29 August 2011, Stoyanov signed a contract with newly promoted A PFG club Ludogorets Razgrad.[5] His debut for the team came on 11 September 2011, in the 6:0 home win against Slavia Sofia. On 30 September 2011, he scored a last-minute goal against Botev Vratsa to temporarily propel the team to the top of the A PFG table.[6] On 28 November 2011, Stoyanov scored another last-minute goal, this time against former club CSKA Sofia, to help Ludogorets secure a 2:2 away draw and enable the team from Razgrad to finish the first half of the A PFG season in first place in the standings.[7] On 2 April 2012, he netted the only goal for his team in the 1:0 away win over Levski Sofia, helping Ludogorets put an end to a three-game losing streak. Stoyanov eventually finished the 2011-12 A PFG season as joint top scorer with Junior Moraes, while Ludogorets won its first A PFG title. On 24 July 2013, he opened the scoring in the 3:0 home win over Slovak side Slovan Bratislava in a 2nd qualifying round UEFA Champions League match. On 21 August 2013, Stoyanov scored a goal early in the second half to give Ludogorets a 2:1 lead over Swiss club FC Basel in a first leg match of the playoff round, but the team from Razgrad eventually lost by a score of 2:4. Stoyanov saw less first team action during the 2013/2014 A PFG season due to the strong performance of the other forwards and rejoined CSKA Sofia in February 2014.[8]
