Loan | Jordi Osei-Tutu joins from Arsenal
Cardiff City Football Club is pleased to confirm that Jordi Osei-Tutu has joined on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal, subject to completion of paperwork and international clearance.
Twenty-one-year-old Jordi signed for the Gunners’ youth academy in 2015, before taking his first steps in professional football last season with VfL Bochum in Germany’s second division, Zweite Bundesliga. Comfortable in a right-back or right wing-back role, Jordi scored five goals with three assists over the course of 21 appearances.
Jordi becomes Neil Harris’ second signing of the summer window, following the arrival of Welsh international Kieffer Moore earlier this month.
Speaking to Cardiff City TV on Tuesday, Jordi said: "I came here because it is a big club giving me a big platform.

"I thank the manager for having the belief to bring me to such a wonderful club and all I want to do is repay him. I'll do that by showing what I can do, helping the team win games and hopefully pushing for promotion.
"I have good knowledge of playing around the pitch, but right-back is my spot. I like to get up and down the pitch, attack and defend. I can't wait to get started."
