The Welsh ace shared a message of himself with the caption:
"After more than 9 years, my time with Cardiff has come to an end."
"I’d like to thank all of my coaches for helping me become the player and person I am today and to all my teammates. I’ll forever be thankful for the opportunity I’ve had at this club."
The signing of the Welsh youth will certainly be of interest to Erik ten Hag, who is masterminding a massive rebuild project at the Theatre of Dreams.
