Cardiff City have snapped up Rennes defender Kevin Theophile-Catherine.
The 23-year-old was at the goalless draw with Everton as he tied up a move for a fee believed to be in the region of £2million on a four-year contract.
Mackay said: "We have signed Kevin Theophile-Catherine from Rennes today.
"He is a good defender, he is someone we have tracked over the last year in France. He is someone who has pace, is aggressive and has good experience in the French top division, so he is someone we feel will be a good addition to our squad."
