Cardiff sign of Kion Etete from Spurs and hand him the number nine shirt

Cardiff have signed of Tottenham forward Kion Etete for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 20-year-old's contract will last until the summer of 2025 and will wear the number nine in the Welsh capital.

Etete joined Spurs in 2019 after bursting on the scene at Notts County and impressed last season in loan spells with Northampton and Cheltenham further down the EFL pyramid.

He made 20 appearances for Tottenham's U23 side in the PL2 during the 2020/21 campaign, scoring nine goals.

Upon signing for the second-tier side, he said: "Obviously having gone from League Two to League One, the Championship is the next one.

"I just can't wait to get started, get used to the level and hopefully excel. I'll always work hard for the team and the club. Winning is the number one priority at the end of the day and I'll do as much as I can to fulfil that."

Bluebirds boss Steve Morison was pleased to secure the services of a player who found the net on 10 occasions for Tottenham's development side in 27 appearances.

"I'm very happy. He's an investment for the club and he's got all the attributes to be a top striker," Morison said.

"He's young, he's hungry and he's a player that we see as ready now. He can get better and better and we'll like to see how far we can take him."
