Cardiff City have completed the signing of Gary Madine from Bolton Wanderers, in a deal which could eventually rise to a reported £8million.

Wanderers are understood to have pocketed an initial £6million for their leading goalscorer, who has signed a three-and-a-half year deal that will keep him at the Cardiff City Stadium until the summer of 2021.

Madine, whose 10 goals this season took his overall tally with the Trotters up to 26 in 107 appearances, had been a long-term target for the Welsh side and Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock couldn't hide his delight upon announcing the arrival of the 27-year-old.

Speaking to cardiffcity.co.uk, Warnock said: "He's been my number one choice all season and I'm delighted to capture him.

"He's been worth the wait, although I must admit that it wasn't until the last 24 hours that I thought it might be possible. I must thank Vincent, Mehmet and Ken for their hard work in getting this over the line. I'm sure the fans will join me in welcoming Gary to the Club."
