Spanish striker joins Cardiff City


Championship side Cardiff City have signed Spanish striker Javi Guerra on a three-year deal from Real Valladolid.

The Welsh side finished bottom of the Premier League last season and will be hoping to bounce straight back up next season under the management of Ole Gunner Solskjaer.

The Norwegian boss is keen to improve his attacking options after seeing none of his current crop score over 10 goals, with Frazer Campbell having scored just nine in all competitions.

And, that has prompted Solskjaer to complete the signature of Javi Guerra from Real Valladolid on a free transfer.

Guerra, scored 72 goals in 149 in his four years with the Spanish club but was unable to stop the Pucela from being relegated from La Liga last season.

The 32-year-old began his career in Barcelona with Espanyol before joining Valencia in 2004, before spells with Granada, Mallorca, Alaves and Levante before joining Valladolid in 2010.
