Cardiff City agree to sign James Collins!
Cardiff City FC is delighted to announce that the Club has agreed to sign forward, James Collins.
The Republic of Ireland international has committed his future to the Bluebirds until the summer of 2023.
Collins brings a wealth of experience to Cardiff City Stadium, with over 500 club appearances and 181 goals to his name.
He was handed his first cap for his country by Mick McCarthy in 2019, scoring on his debut against Bulgaria. He went on to net his first competitive goal for the Boys in Green in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier versus Serbia.
Speaking to Cardiff City TV, Collins said: "I'm absolutely delighted.
"To be here today to sign for this great Club is a real honour and I can't wait to get going.
"I'm an honest player and I'll always work hard for the team. I like to link up play and I like to think my main attribute is scoring goals. That's what I love doing and hopefully I can score lots of them here."
The Gaffer also spoke after securing his first signing of the summer, adding: "It's a really good signing for us.
"He's been on an upward trajectory all his career, going from the lower leagues to the Championship and he's kept scoring goals.
"I like when they've come up the hard way, coming through the school of hard knocks to keep progressing and getting to a higher standard.
"He's ended up an international footballer through all of that and that's due to his hard work, diligence and ability to score goals.
"He's got a great scoring record. He's durable, he's tough and he'll be one of us. I'm delighted to have him."
