Josh Bowler is a Bluebird
Cardiff City Football Club are excited to welcome winger Josh Bowler to Cardiff City Stadium for the 2023/24 season.
Josh joins on loan for the campaign from Premier League side Nottingham Forest.
He has plenty of experience in the second tier, making his debut at the age of 18 for QPR in 2017. Bowler joined Everton that summer, also enjoying a spell on loan with Hull City in the Championship while at Goodison. In 2021, Bowler linked up with Blackpool, scoring nine times in all competitions and earning a Premier League move to current parent Club, Forest. The 24-year-old had loans with Olympiakos and his former club, Blackpool last term.
Speaking at the Vale Resort earlier today, Josh said: “I heard about the interest and knew the manager and Club really liked me and it was a Club I really wanted to come to.
“I’ve played in the Championship quite a lot. This season for me is about getting minutes and showing everyone at Cardiff City what I can do and hopefully taking them to the promised land. With the squad we have and with the additions we’ve made, that’s what we have to aim for.”
City boss Erol Bulut added: “Two years ago, Josh was one of the best wingers in the Championship. We’re excited he’s here. He’s a good worker, with a great left-foot, who will bring goals and assists to our side.
“We now have a variety of possibilities across our front line. They will all bring something different and offer us more creativity this season.”
Bowler is City's sixth signing for the First Team this summer, joining Iké Ugbo, Dimitrios Goutas, Yakou Méïté, Karlan Grant and Aaron Ramsey at CCS! Welcome to South Wales, Josh!
