Cardiff keeper Marshall nears Hull move

David Marshall

David Marshall has made 24 appearances for Scotland

Cardiff City captain David Marshall’s move to Premier League club Hull City is close to being completed after the Bluebirds accepted a £5 million bid.

Talking before Saturday’s Championship game against Reading, Cardiff head coach Paul Trollope said: “He’s agreed personal terms, so that is imminent.”

The Scotland goalkeeper was left out of the Bluebirds’ squad for the match.

Marshall, 31, has made more than 280 appearances for Cardiff since arriving from Norwich City for free in 2009.

Cardiff have signed Bolton goalkeeper Ben Amos on a season-long loan, but they have also sold back-up keeper Simon Moore to Sheffield United.

Marshall, considered one of the best goalkeepers outside the Premier League, was the subject of interest from West Bromwich Albion last summer and has also been linked with Everton.

His Scotland colleague, Allan McGregor, is presently with Hull but required surgery on a back injury that had him sidelined at the end of last season.

The signing of Amos and defender Joe Bennett, who has joined from Aston Villa, means Cardiff have made seven signings this summer.

Lex Immers, Kenneth Zohore, Emyr Huws, Jazz Richards and Frederic Gounongbe have also moved to the Welsh capital.
