Cardiff Spend Over £8m to Sign Chilean Midfielder Gary Medel From Sevilla: Daily Soccer Report

Cardiff City have broken their club transfer record for the third time this summer after signing Chilean midfielder Gary Medel from Sevilla on a deal that’s over £8million.

While the deal is subject to a work permit, the midfielder has made close to sixty appearances for Chile and played three games at World Cup 2010. The 26-year-old played for Sevilla against Manchester United on Friday.

Here’s what Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay said about Mendel:

“We’re delighted to have secured the services of Gary – a tenacious and intelligent international midfielder.

“He’s played in a number of Boca v River Plate derbies in Argentina – one of the world’s biggest derby matches – and I’ve no doubt that his background and pedigree will complement our midfield group in the Barclays Premier League.”
