Kadeem Harris is set to make his debut for Cardiff City, three years after signing for the Bluebirds from Wycombe in a £150,000 deal, reports Wales Online.
Strangely enough, his chance to shine will come against a Brentford team that he made eleven appearances for as they secured promotion last season.
The Wycombe conveyor belt has produced a string of starlets in recent years such as Matt Phillips of QPR and Liverpool’s Jordan Ibe, currently of Derby County and Harris could be the next to shine.
He was a second half substitute in the 5-3 loss to Bournemouth last weekend and is determined to earn more first team appearances this term.
“It was great to make my league debut at Bournemouth,” said Harris to Wales Online.
“It’s just unfortunate that the result didn’t top off a great day for me. Hopefully I can get more appearances and be a part of wins.“The new manager has shown a lot of faith in me and I’m over the moon with that.
“I will work to repay him in many ways and my aim is to keep putting in performances and offering a lot to the team. Hopefully my appearance wasn’t a one off.”
Harris was Football League Apprentice of the Year in 2011 and is now looking to make the grade at Championship standard.“My dream is to be part of a promotion-winning team,” says Harris, who missed out under Mackay but is determined to make the most of his opportunity under Slade.
“I know that’s a big challenge for me, but it’s something I will give everything to achieve.” Harris added.
With Anthony Pilkington still to return from injury and Kim Bo Kyung failing to impress in a wide left berth, it is thought that Harris will be given the chance to earn a regular starting role at the club.
