Cardiff City striker Bobby Reid has signed for Fulham.

The 26-year old joined Cardiff from Bristol City for a fee of around £10m last summer, but has arguably failed to really hit the heights for Cardiff in the way some had hoped, netting five goals in 28 appearances.

He was tipped for a big campaign upon Cardiff's return to the Championship this season, but Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock was happy to let him move on this summer for pastures new.

Fulham FC statement
The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Bobby Decordova-Reid on loan from Cardiff City, subject to domestic and international clearance.

The 26-year-old forward will remain at Craven Cottage for the duration of the season, in a deal that could later become permanent.

Decordova-Reid last played in the Championship in 2017/18 when he netted 19 league goals and was named in the PFA Team of the Year.

He joined local team Bristol City as a youngster, progressing through the ranks until he made his senior debut as an 18-year-old on the final day of the 2010/11 Championship season.

After taking in loan spells at Cheltenham Town, Oldham Athletic and Plymouth Argyle, Decordova-Reid established himself in the Robins midfield, before the decision to move him further forward paid huge dividends.

Playing as a striker, he hit 21 goals in all competitions as City finished eight points off the Play-Offs and reached the Semi-Finals of the EFL Cup, where Decordova-Reid was on target at the Etihad in a hard fought 5-3 aggregate defeat by Manchester City.

His form meant that he was playing Premier League football the following term as Cardiff City took him to Wales, and he netted five top flight goals despite only starting 15 matches.
