Emmanuel-Thomas joins Cardiff

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas

Cardiff have signed Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season.

The attacking midfielder arrives in the Welsh capital having made four first-team appearances for the Gunners this term.

The 20-year-old was a late substitute in Arsenal's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Chelsea in October, as well as coming off the bench in the final 10 minutes for the London club's Champions League encounter against Shakhtar Donetsk and Carling Cup ties versus Newcastle and Wigan.

Emmanuel-Thomas has experience of the Championship having spent the first half of last season on loan at Blackpool, where he scored once in 12 appearances, before moving on to Doncaster at the turn of the year and hitting the target five times in 14 games.

The Gunners starlet, who has also scored 10 times in just nine appearances for Arsenal's reserves this term, becomes Cardiff's second signing of the January window after Jon Parkin.
