Uruguayan U20 defender is City's sixth signing of the summer

Cardiff City Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Uruguayan U20 international, Maximiliano Amondarain.

The 20 year-old central defender impressed during a trial period earlier in the summer and now links up with Malky Mackay's squad from CA Progreso, in Montevideo.

Maxi was part of the Uruguayan U20 squad that finished runners-up to France in July's 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey. A strong and talented ball-playing centre-half, he completed his medical in Cardiff on Friday prior to signing a four year deal with the Bluebirds.

We wish to thank our colleagues in South America for their highly professional conduct and assistance in the transfer.
