Watch both interviews in full later this afternoon onCardiff City Player
Two of City's summer signings Joe Lewis and Jordon Mutch sat for their first Cardiff City press conferences on Thursday morning.
Twenty-four year-old goalkeeper Joe signed from Championship rivals Peterborough United back in June and told reporters of his already established relationship with number one competitor David Marshall.
"I'm looking forward to battling for the number one shirt with Marshy," he said. "We've worked together in the past, quite a while ago now, when we were both at Norwich and we know each other. We had our first session out on the grass today and enjoyed it - hopefully we can spur each other on to get the best out of each other.
"Both of us want to play in the team but there's only one spot - that's the nature of being a goalkeeper. But from my experience, goalkeepers tend to get along well and that's the same with Marshy and myself. I'll be fully behind Marshy if he gets picked ahead of me and I'm sure he will be behind me if I get picked.
"Cardiff City is a massive Club, potentially a huge one. I enjoyed my time at Peterborough but felt that the time was right to move on; the opportunity to come to Cardiff came up and I grabbed the chance with both hands."
echoed his new team-mates sentiments in this respect, adding: "It was an easy decision for me to make when I knew Cardiff were interested in me.JordonTwenty-year old
"I obviously know the manager well from the time I spent on loan at Watford the season before last and him being here, coupled with the potential this Club has following the new investment, really appealed. We are a big Club and this was definitely the right move for me.
"I've enjoyed these first couple of days with the lads out on the training pitch and I've been made to feel very welcome. Another reason for coming here was down to the fact that we already have some top players here; I can't wait until the season begins and lining up along the likes of Peter Whittingham and Aron Gunnarsson if we are picked together.
"As a player I like to get forward and score goals but equally enjoying dropping a bit and setting up play. There are players here who can really help my game and I can't wait to get going."
