Cardiff City are pleased to announce that Matthew Connolly has joined the Club from Queen's Park Rangers, following the completion of his medical and paperwork on Wednesday morning.

Defender Matthew - who is comfortable playing anywhere across the back four - joins on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee. He is expected to link up with his new team-mates on Thursday as the squad prepares for Saturday's visit to Bristol City.

A former Arsenal youngster, 24 year-old Matthew signed for Rangers in 2008 after impressive loan spells at Bournemouth and Colchester. He featured prominently in QPR's 2010/11 Championship promotion season, before joining Reading on loan towards the end of the 2011/12 campaign and helping them to the top flight.
