Cardiff City Football Club can today confirm that an emergency loan deal has been fully agreed with Norwich City for the services of defender Simon Lappin.
The loan deal is set to run until January 1st 2013, inclusive of the Birmingham City away fixture, though Norwich have the ability to recall their player after twenty eight days.
Simon is currently en-route to Cardiff and will meet up and train with the squad for the first time on Thursday morning. The 29 year old former Scotland Under 21 International will then be available for selection this Saturday for the Championship trip to Barnsley. He will wear squad number 24.
An adaptable player, Simon can play as a left back or in midfield. With defensive injury concerns this week, he is a welcome addition to the squad, while we would also like to thank Chris Hughton and Norwich City for allowing Simon to join us for this period.
