Deal Close: Cardiff City set to sign former Leeds United defender



New Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock, who was appointed only on Wednesday, is reportedly close to completing the signing of free agent defender Sol Bamba, according to the South Wales Echo.

The 31-year-old was released by fellow Championship club Leeds United earlier this season.

Bamba would be Cardiff’s second signing since Neil Warnock was put in charge after the Bluebirds signed former Queens Park Rangers winger Junior Hoilett on Thursday.

Sol Bamba had made 51 appearances for Leeds since joining the Yorkshire club last summer.

The Ivory Coast international currently as 44 caps for his national side and has also played for Paris Saint-Germain, Hibernian and Leicester City.

Before having his contract terminated at Leeds United, Bamba started the season by scoring an own goal in a 3-0 defeat to QPR and fell down the defensive pecking order in Garry Monk’s squad behind Kyle Bartley, Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson.
