Cardiff sign Medel in record deal

first_imgCardiff have confirmed the club-record signing of Chile international Gary Medel from Sevilla on a four-year deal, subject to him getting a work permit. “We’re delighted to have secured the services of Gary – a tenacious and intelligent international midfielder,” manager Malky Mackay told his club’s official website. “Having had two seasons of regular football in La Liga – with 60-odd international caps to his name and three appearances at a World Cup – his experience will be an invaluable asset to our squad. “He’s played in a number of Boca v River Plate derbies in Argentina – one of the world’s biggest derby matches – and I’ve no doubt that his background and pedigree will complement our midfield group in the Barclays Premier League.” Medel started his career with Universidad Catolica before moving to Boca Juniors in 2009 and then Sevilla in 2011. He will join up with his country tomorrow ahead of a friendly against Iraq in Denmark on Wednesday, before returning to a Cardiff squad boasting other new signings in the shape of Caulker, John Brayford, Andreas Cornelius and Simon Moore. The newly-promoted Barclays Premier League club announced the move for the 26-year-old, a day after Medel played for Sevilla against Manchester United. The midfielder has top-level experience having played for Chile at the 2010 World Cup and the club’s confirmation that his fee is a record one means he has cost more than the £8million they recently paid to Tottenham for Steven Caulker. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
