Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City have completed the signing of Junior Hoilett for a free transfer after just a few days in charge, reports BBC Sport.
Warnock revealed in an interview that he was planning to bring in players before they faced Bristol City next weekend, and he has kept his promise by bringing in the pacey winger.
Warnock is thought to be a big admirer of the 26-year-old after working with him during his days at QPR.
Once dubbed by FIFA as one of the young players to watch in 2012, Hoilett was released by QPR in the summer after Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink offloaded many players on high wages.
Hoilett made an impact at Loftus Road last season, despite a continuous niggling injury; he made 37 appearances for club and his native country Canada – scoring six goals.
The Bluebirds’ weakest department is out on the wing and Warnock has acted quickly to resolve this issue.
Hoilett will link up with his new team mates this week and is expected to be thrown straight into the first team to face Bristol City next weekend.
