Matty joined the Bluebirds in a double swoop in February 2015, as City also signed fellow Everton youngster Conor McAleny on loan on the same day. Matty himself signed a three-and-a-half-year contract in South Wales, and made an instant impact with his speed, tenacity and direct running.

The Scotland U21 international has ample experience for his young age. Having broken through at Kilmarnock, Matty made the switch to the Toffees in 2012. From there he enjoyed time out on loan at Tranmere Rovers, MK Dons and Hibernian.

The winger was named man of the match on his début against Blackburn and went on to make 14 league appearances before the end of the season.
