Newly-promoted club Cardiff City have officially completed the signing of Bristol City striker Bobby Reid for a fee reported to be worth £10 million according to reports from BBC.
The 25-year-old, who reaped the labour of his good form last season after being named in the EFL Championship team of the year, has now put pen to paper to sign a four-year deal with the newly promoted Premier League club.
“I think his best is yet to come, he’s capable of scoring goals at the top level,” Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said via BBC.
“I watched him when he was at Plymouth Argyle… when he was on loan there and I’ve watched him since then,” he said.
“He can play in a couple of positions for us; we haven’t really got anyone who can play at the front of the diamond other than [Callum] Paterson and I think we need another option there; which Bobby gives us.
“Also he can play right up front and it’s an area I have been looking at.
“People like him and Josh Murphy [the winger signed from Norwich City] are hungry, I’ve got to get hungry players now and they’re both really looking forward to the challenge.”
“I’m delighted to be here and to be a Premier League player,” Reid added.
“I want to show my high energy and work rate, as well as being creative and working for the team. I’m buzzing to get started.”
