4 years 4 months ago
Cardiff City Football Club is delighted to announce that Aron Gunnarsson has put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at Cardiff City Stadium until the summer of 2018.
Aron will return for pre-season training later this month before embarking on his fifth campaign as a Bluebird. The incumbent Iceland Skipper originally signed for Cardiff City in the summer of 2011, from former club Coventry City.
The Bluebirds’ third longest-serving current player behind Peter Whittingham and David Marshall, Aron has made 168 appearances for the Club in all competitions, scoring 18 goals to date.
Speaking exclusively to cardiffcityfc.co.uk from his native Iceland on Tuesday, Aron said: “I’m very happy to be committing my future to Cardiff City Football Club.
“I’ve enjoyed some fantastic times already during the four seasons I’ve been here and look forward to many more as we aim to push on next season and beyond.
“I’d like to thank the City fans for their support and look forward to getting back out there with the rest of the lads for pre-season.
"We’re all going to be looking to hit the ground running and I’m delighted that I’ve been able to sort out my future ahead of returning next month so that my focus can be fully on the task in hand."
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Aron for his continued efforts for our Football Club.
