"As soon as a club like Cardiff City were interested I was excited and I couldn't miss this opportunity,” the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international told the Cardiff website.

“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."
