Cardiff City sign former Arsenal and Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh on short-term deal

Former Arsenal and Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh has signed a short-term deal at Cardiff City.

New manager Neil Warnock has been busy in the transfer market, landing Sol Bamba and Junior Hoilett since getting the job.

And now he has moved to strengthen his frontline with the capture of Moroccan forward Chamakh.

Warnock knows all about Chamakh, having worked with him during his time at Palace and he has handed him a contract until January in south Wales.

The 32-year-old told Cardiff Player: “I’m so happy to be here and work with the manager again.

“I worked for him [Neil Warnock] at Crystal Palace before and I’m happy and proud to work with him here at Cardiff City FC.

“Cardiff are a side that should be on top and I think we can improve going forward. I’m looking forward to meeting with my new team-mates and getting started. I can’t wait to score for my new team.”
