Romaine Sawyers is a Bluebird
Cardiff City FC are pleased to announce that Romaine Sawyers has joined the club on a two-year deal, subject to clearance.
The 30-year-old arrives in the Welsh capital following a three-year spell with West Bromwich Albion, during which time he was a key figure in aiding the Baggies to Premier League promotion in 2019/20.
Sawyers was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Season after helping Albion reach the top flight, and went on to make 19 Premier League appearances the following year.
The creative midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Stoke City, also possesses plenty of Championship experience from his time at Brentford, and has earned 30 international caps for Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Speaking to Cardiff City TV after putting pen to paper, Romaine said: “It’s good to finally get it over the line. I spoke to the gaffer, he explained the project that he’s got, and I feel like I want to be a part of it.
“The staff have been very welcoming, the players have been very welcoming, and it’s good to be back within a team.
“We’ve got a lot of young, energetic players. I’m one of the more senior ones, who is going to be here to try and add a bit of experience and know-how of the league.
“I like to get on the ball, and I want to get the team playing. I’ll try and chip in with a few goals and assists, and I like to bring others into play and put them in dangerous positions.”
Bluebirds boss Steve Morison added: “I’m sure everyone knows about Romaine and his qualities; he can be the difference in a game. He’s a top quality Championship midfielder, which adds to the top quality players we already have.
“He’s got undoubted quality to see a pass and make things happen. I’m very excited to have him on board, and I think the supporters should be as well.
“Obviously we can make five substitutions this season, and that will come into our thinking, so it’s worth having those extra bodies in every position we can.
"It creates great competition, and I’m really looking forward to seeing them altogether.”
