Cardiff snap up Cala

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been busy in the transfer market in his short time at Cardiff

Cardiff have announced the signing of defender Juan Cala on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The 24-year-old had his contract with Sevilla terminated last weekend, with the Spanish club confirming he was moving to Cardiff.

Cala has trained with his new team-mates throughout the week and is available for selection in Saturday's south Wales derby against Swansea.

A Cardiff statement said: "Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that Spanish defender Juan Torres Ruiz Cala has officially joined the club on a two-and-a-half-year deal."

Cala is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's seventh signing following the arrivals of Magnus Wolff Eikrem, Mats Moller Daehli, Jo Inge Berget, Fabio, Kenwyne Jones and Wilfried Zaha.
