Cardiff City agree deal with Jak Alnwick
The Bluebirds have agreed terms with goalkeeper Jak Alnwick on a two-year deal, subject to clearance.
The twenty-eight-year-old, who will formally move to the Welsh capital on July 1st, 2022, has spent the past two seasons with St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership, making 83 appearances for the Buddies.
Alnwick made his professional debut for Newcastle United in 2011, before joining Port Vale in 2015. The stopper moved north of the border to Rangers in 2017, and aided Blackpool to promotion from League One during a 2019/20 loan spell at Bloomfield Road.
After finalising the agreement at Cardiff City Stadium, Jak said: “As soon as I heard that the Club were interested I couldn’t wait to get here. It has been a long couple of days, but to get it over the line is amazing and I can’t wait to get into pre-season and get started. I wanted to be playing in the EFL and it was the next step in my career.
“I can’t wait to meet everyone, including all of the fans, and show them what I can do. It’s a huge club and I’m delighted to be here.”
City boss Steve Morison was at CCS as his new signing put pen-to-paper. He added: “He’s really experienced and we needed to add in that department. He’s an excellent goalie and he’s at the peak of his powers.
“He’s got a great pedigree and he was really pleased to come, and that’s what we want; we want people who want to come, we want people who want to be a part of it, and we want the fans to be excited by the signings.
“He’s had a really good season, four clean sheets in his last four games and he comes here ready to be part of it next season. We’re really excited to have him on board.”
