Joe Bennett signs new City deal
Cardiff City FC is delighted to announce that Joe Bennett has signed a new deal with the Bluebirds, running until the summer of 2021.
Having signed for City back in August 2016, Joe made the Bluebirds’ left-back position his own in the two years since.
He was one of City’s star performers as he made a total of 41 appearances in the 2017/18 campaign, while his important strike away at Reading was shortlisted for the Bluebirds’ Goal of the Season award.
Having signed his new deal at the H.R. Owen Ferrari London showroom in South Kensington, Joe told cardiffcityfc.co.uk: “I’m really happy. It got sorted out very quickly, so now I can just concentrate on my football and hopefully having a good season.
“I think we’ve got a good squad and the Manager has signed some good, young and hungry players. There is no pressure on us really and we can just go out and enjoy it.
“We’ve got really nice kits – the home and away ones. That’s nice for the fans and I just can’t wait to get the season going. It will be nice to meet the new lads, hopefully have a good pre-season down in Cornwall and then get stuck into it!”
Executive Director & CEO, Ken Choo, said: “Joe has performed admirably for the Club since we welcomed him here two years ago.
“He seemed to reach another level in our promotion-winning season last year, and we know how excited he is to represent Cardiff City in the Premier League. We are delighted to see him commit his future and continue his development with the Bluebirds.”
