Football: EPL newcomers Cardiff break transfer record again to land Chilean Medel
LONDON (REUTERS) - English Premier League new boys Cardiff City have broken their transfer record for a third time in a matter of weeks by striking a deal with Spanish football club Sevilla for Chile midfielder Gary Medel.
Cardiff said the 26-year-old had agreed a four-year deal, subject to obtaining a British work permit, but did not say how much they paid for their record signing.
British media reported a fee of £11 million (S$21.44 million).
"We're delighted to have secured the services of Gary - a tenacious and intelligent international midfielder," Cardiff manager Malky Mackay told the club's website on Saturday.
