Club careerEdit

Stoian started his career at Gheorghe Popescu's football school, which he joined in 2006.[2]

RomaEdit

In 2008, he joined Serie A team A.S. Roma.[3] 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.[4]

Stoian spent the 2010–11 season on loan at Pescara, but he did not manage to impress due to an injury that sidelined him for good part of the year.[5]

Loan to BariEdit

On 5 August 2011, Stoian 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 formalize the deal, Stoian also signed a new three-year contract with €86,700 annual gross wage.[6]

In December, Stoian had a great game against Brescia, when he scored two goals in a 3–1 victory.[7] On 14 January 2012, he closed the scoring in the 2–0 victory against A.S. Varese.[8] On 11 March, Stoian brought his team the victory, with a last minute goal against Reggina Calcio.[9] He finished an impressive 2011–12 season scoring five goals from 31 games for Bari.[10]

On 22 June 2012, A.S. Bari activated a buy-out clause in his contract for €300K in co-ownership deal[11] and Stoian signed for them. A week later, Roma bought him back from Bari for a fee of €1 million.[12][13]

ChievoEdit

In the summer of 2012, after an excellent season in Serie B, Stoian joined Chievo Verona in another co-ownership deal for €500,000,[14][15] in a deal that involved Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley going the other way.[16]

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.[17] In January 2015 Stoian was signed by Serie B club F.C. Crotone in a temporary deal.[18]

In June 2015 Chievo acquired Stoian for free.[19][20] Stoian's contract was canceled in a mutual consent on 21 August.[21]

CrotoneEdit

On 25 August 2015, Stoian was signed by Crotone on a free transfer. He signed a three-year deal.[22]

LivornoEdit

On 19 August 2019, he signed with Serie B club Livorno.[23]

AscoliEdit

On 12 January 2021 he returned to Italy and signed with Ascoli.[24]

International careerEdit

Stoian made his international debut against Trinidad & Tobago, playing the last ten minutes of a friendly game on 4 June 2013.[25]
