Born in The Hague, Netherlands, the 6’2” attacker came through the Den Haag Academy before making his professional debut in 2007.
Speaking of the signing, Cardiff City CEO, Ken Choo, said on Thursday: “We are thrilled to welcome Lex to Cardiff City Football Club.
“Lex is a great addition to our team, who has the technical ability and pace that we are looking for. More importantly, he has the ability to put the ball in the back of the net.
“The Management of the Club is constantly looking to strengthening the team. We have a strong belief this season and shall continue to push forward.
“Lex will wear the number 27 shirt for the remainder of the 2015/16 season.”
Speaking exclusively to Cardiff City Player HD, Lex added: “I’m very excited to be coming from one of the biggest teams in the Netherlands to the biggest team in Wales.
“It’s always been an ambition of mine to play in the UK and I’m looking forward to getting the opportunity to do that, here at Cardiff City.
“Obviously it will depend on the Manager come the weekend, but if selected then I’ll be ready. I’m looking forward to playing.
“Back in the Netherlands, supporters like the fact that I work hard, go from box to box, press and keep running. That’s what I’m going to bring to Cardiff City.”
