Transfer Window Review: Cardiff City
— Cardiff City FC (@CardiffCityFC) September 3, 2013
Five word review: No need to pinch yourselves.
In: Gary Medel (Sevilla, £9.5m), Steven Caulker (Tottenham, £8m), Andreas Cornelius (FC Copenhagen, £7.5m), Peter Odemwingie (WBA, £2.5m), Kevin Théophile-Catherine (Rennes, £2.1m), John Brayford (Derby County, £1.5m), Simon Moore (Brentford, £150,000), Maximiliano Amondarain (CA Progreso, Free).
Out: Elliot Parish (Bristol City, Free), Ben Nugent (Brentford, Loan), Joe Ralls (Yeovil, Loan).
Released: Heidar Helguson, Jese Darko, Nat Jarvis, Stephen McPhail.
– The likes of Medel, Caulker and Cornelius coming in? Cardiff have really gone for quality and spent the money to get it.
– Solid centre-back, combative midfielder, talented goalscorer: they’ve signed what could be a great spine if Cornelius adapts to the Premier League.
– The rumours suggest they also missed on a few targets that would have added even more strength.
– Possible lack of depth when it comes to top-flight quality.
