Joe Day: Is that a Newport player at Cardiff training?

Joe Day
Joe Day joined Newport in January 2015 and has made over 200 appearances for the club

He was named the best goalkeeper in League Two last season, but Joe Day appears to be rubbish at hide and seek.

Out of contract at the end of June, the Newport County player had been heavily linked with a move to Cardiff City.

However, with his move not announced until the following day, Day appeared to be rumbled on social media in a picture uploaded and then deleted by striker Kenneth Zohore.

Was that the goalkeeper we see on the floor, already in Cardiff colours?

The Bluebirds saw the funny side of the post by Zohore, referencing it in their own Tweet

Day was announced as a Cardiff player alongside new signings Will Vaulks and Curtis Nelson as the Bluebirds shape their squad for the upcoming campaign.

Newport boss Michael Flynn admitted his side would probably need to be promoted to keep hold of Day, but the Exiles were beaten at Wembley in the League Two play-off final, losing 1-0 to Tranmere Rovers.

This is not the first time Day has been a hot topic on social media in 2019.

As his Newport team-mates were celebrating a stunning FA Cup win over Championship side Middlesbrough in February, Day was sprinting down the tunnel after hearing his wife had gone into labour.

Day was greeted at the hospital by twin girls Sophia Grace and Emelia Lillie.

Now a whirlwind year has culminated with a dream move to a side just relegated from the Premier League and among the favourites for Championship promotion.

As for the spoiler, well, that one is on Kenneth Zohore.
