Sporting have landed the 21-year-old on a reported five-year contract from Russian side FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast. "It's a big step in my career, Sporting are a big club, but I don't fear anything. I have lots of experience," said the former FK Partizan player, who helped Serbia and Montenegro to the semi-finals of the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Portugal.
Vukčević scored 13 goals in 51 appearances for Partizan then once in 28 league outings for Saturn. He won five senior caps for Serbia and Montenegro before, following independence, making his debut for Montenegro in March's 2-1 win against Hungary. He can now look forward to participating in Sporting's UEFA Champions League campaign, starting in the group stage in September.
