Done Deal | Mark McGuinness joins the Bluebirds
Cardiff City Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Mark McGuinness.
The 20-year-old joins from Arsenal and has agreed a deal until the summer of 2024. He is Mick McCarthy’s second summer signing.
McGuinness is an U21 international for the Republic of Ireland. He spent the 2020/21 season on loan with Ipswich Town in League One, appearing in 25 competitive matches and scoring once.
Speaking to Cardiff City TV, Mark said: "As soon as a Club like Cardiff City were interested I was excited and I couldn't miss this opportunity.
"It's nice to get everything sorted early on and hopefully I can meet the boys and get going.
"My job is to stop the ball going into the back of the net. I love heading and I love defending.
"It's a great opportunity for me to learn and improve in the next few years at the Club."
Welcome to the Welsh capital, Mark!
