Cardiff City land Striker (finally)

Cardiff City land Striker (finally)

Republic of Ireland striker Jason Byrne will today join Cardiff City after agreeing terms with the Championship Club. The forward impressed sufficiently during a 3 day trial, and having missed out on previous targets, manager Dave Jones swooped for the Eircom league`s top scorer.

Byrne has agreed personal terms and will sign today (Tuesday) subject to a medical. His club Shelbourne have accepted an undisclosed offer, after their manager was a guest at Ninian Park for the visit of Southend United. Perhaps the Shels boss felt sorry for us after witnessing a woeful attacking display from the Bluebirds.

Byrne, 29 in February, has scored 83 goals over 4 seasons for Shelbourne and was voted PFAI player of the year for 2003 after topping the scoring charts in the Eircom league. He also scored 5 in the Champions League qualifying rounds in 2005 again winning the PFAI award.

Byrne is not an immediate saviour to City`s goalscoring crisis after Jones admitted it would take the Irishman a couple of weeks to regain match fitness:

"His season ended in November so he needs to get fit,' said Jones.
'He needs a few weeks hard training under his belt and then we'll give him an opportunity. He's scored a lot of goals at the level he's played, can he do it at this level? We'll find out soon.'

An official Shelbourne statement read: "We wish to thank Jason for the many great moments he gave us over the last number of years and wish him every success in the future.'
