Cardiff net Chilean Medel on club record deal

Cardiff City, newly promoted to the English Premier League, confirmed a club record signing of Chilean international midfielder Gary Medel from Sevilla FC on a four-year deal.

The Welsh outfit said the deal, reported in Spain as being 13 million euros for a player who is closing on 60 Chilean caps, was still subject to a work permit.

Medel, 26, who made three appearances for Chile at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, earlier completed his medical.

Cardiff coach Malky Mackay told the club website: "We're delighted to have secured the services of Gary - a tenacious and intelligent international midfielder.

"Having had two seasons of regular football in La Liga - with 60 odd international caps to his name and three appearances at a World Cup - his experience will be an invaluable asset to our squad.

"He's played in a number of Boca v River Plate derbies in Argentina - one of the world's biggest derby matches - and I've no doubt that his background and pedigree will complement our midfield group in the Barclays Premier League."
