Anthony Pilkington: Cardiff City sign Norwich City winger
Cardiff City have signed Norwich City winger Anthony Pilkington on a three-year deal for a fee of £1m.
He was the second signing confirmed on Friday following 23-year-old Reading centre-back Sean Morrison.
Republic of Ireland international Pilkington scored 15 goals in 62 starts for the Canaries.
The 26-year-old will provide new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with options out wide with Craig Noone injured.
Noone will not be fit to play until September, suffering from a long-standing groin injury.
Pilkington will be reunited with former Norwich team-mate Tom Adeyemi at the Cardiff City Stadium and could make his debut against his former club Huddersfield on Saturday 16 August.
The 22-year-old central midfielder signed for Cardiff as a direct replacement for Jordon Mutch, who has completed his £6m transfer to Queens Park Rangers.
It has been a busy transfer window for Solskjaer.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan have completed the transfer of Chile World Cup midfielder Gary Medel for £10m.
And Peter Whittingham has committed his future to Cardiff by signing a contract extension until June 2017.
Former Manchester Untied striker Solskjaer says he is also trying to sign a central defender, following the departure of Caulker and with Ben Turner (ankle injury) and Juan Cala (suspended) both sidelined.
