The Bluebirds announced the Deadline Day signing of striker Isaac Vassell on, Thursday, 8th August 2019.

Isaac grew up in Newquay, Cornwall, and began his career with Plymouth Argyle. Following a variety of loan spells, the forward joined Truro City in 2014, scoring 22 goals. His 13 strikes in 2014-/5 helped the White Tigers to promotion to the National League South.

Cousin of former Aston Villa and Manchester City striker Darius Vassell, Isaac’s scoring record earned him a move to the EFL in 2016, signing for Luton Town. He continued his impressive form into the 2016/17 season, netting 14 goals in all competitions. His goals helped the Hatters to the League Two Play-Off semi-finals and he scored in the first leg against Blackpool.

A gifted all-round track and field athlete in his youth, Isaac joined Birmingham City in 2017. After a lively start, an injury prematurely ended the striker’s first season in the Championship. A powerful and pacey forward, Vassell has signed a three-year deal at Cardiff City Stadium until the summer of 2022.
