Career high
The 24-year-old has left the Turkish club to accept the challenge of UEFA Champions League football with the Portuguese title-holders. Stepanov said: "This is the biggest moment of my career. I needed a new challenge and now I want to show why Porto have brought me here."

Stepanov spent five and a half seasons with FK Vojvodina before joining Trabzonspor during the 2005/06 campaign. In Turkey he made 37 league appearances. The centre-back has also won five international caps over the last year, since reaching the UEFA European Under-21 Championship semi-finals with Serbia and Montenegro in 2006.
