Bacuna becomes a Bluebird on deadline day

Midfielder departs to sign for Premier League Cardiff City

31 January 2019

Reading Football Club can announce that midfielder Leandro Bacuna has today joined Premier League side Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old Curacao international joined the Royals from Aston Villa in the summer of 2017 and went on to make 59(+7) appearances for the club, scoring five times in total.

Neil Warnock’s men currently occupy a position in the top flight relegation zone, having won 19 points from their first 24 Premier League games since earning promotion as Championship runners-up last season.

City lost to Arsenal at the Emirates earlier in the week and are four points adrift of safety - but Bacuna could be eligible to make his Bluebirds debut at home to Bournemouth this weekend.

We would like to thank Leandro for his hard work and commitment during his time at Madejski Stadium and wish him the very best of luck in the Welsh capital.
