The Canadian international winger has signed a deal until the summer of 2017 and will link up for a second time with Neil Warnock having previously played for the City Boss at Queens Park Rangers.

Speaking exclusively to Cardiff City Player HD in an interview that you can watch in full as part of this Wednesday’s early edition of ‘In The City’, Junior said: “I’m really pleased to be here and I’m ready to go.
“The Manager puts belief in his players and this is a great group of lads. Everyone loves playing for the Gaffer.
“I’m here to hopefully bring some more creativity and goals. I can’t wait to get started.”

“I’m delighted to have him here with us at Cardiff City and I know that he’ll respond to the the fans and me.
