DONE DEAL: Mark McGuinness delighted leaving Arsenal for Cardiff

Republic of Ireland youth international Mark McGuinness has left Arsenal for Cardiff City.

The 20-year-old joins from Arsenal and has agreed a deal until the summer of 2024. He is Mick McCarthy's second summer signing.

McGuinness is an U21 international for the Republic of Ireland. He spent the 2020/21 season on loan with Ipswich Town in League One, appearing in 25 competitive matches and scoring once.

Speaking to Cardiff City TV, McGuinness said: "As soon as a Club like Cardiff City were interested I was excited and I couldn't miss this opportunity.

"It's nice to get everything sorted early on and hopefully I can meet the boys and get going.

"My job is to stop the ball going into the back of the net. I love heading and I love defending.

"It's a great opportunity for me to learn and improve in the next few years at the Club."
