Cardiff City Football Club is pleased to confirm that terms have been agreed with Feyenoord for the permanent transfer of Lex Immers.
Personal terms have also been agreed with Lex, who returned to the Welsh Capital on Wednesday to meet Club officials. Lex will officially become a Cardiff City player as of 1st July 2016, having signed a two year deal.
The twenty-nine year-old Dutchman made a significant impact with the Bluebirds after signing for the club on loan back in January. During his temporary spell at the Club, Lex scored five goals in fifteen appearances as he very quickly established himself as a fan-favourite.
Lex’s signing marks the Bluebirds’ first of the summer transfer window, with the club free to trade following the lifting of the previously imposed FFP embargo.
Speaking of the news, Executive Director & CEO Ken Choo said: “We’re delighted to be officially welcoming Lex to the Cardiff City family. The impact he made during his time on loan was significant, and we feel that he is the right fit for the future we see for the Football Club. A number of other clubs wanted him this summer, but I’m thrilled that he has shown such commitment and loyalty to us.”
Lex Immers added: “It only took one meeting with the CEO for me to know that this was where I wanted to be. My family are already settled in Cardiff and the rapport I have with the fans is something I want to nurture going forward. This is a fantastic club with ambition that matches my own.”
