Leicester Snap Up Bluebirds Target

Leicester Snap Up Bluebirds Target

Former Cardiff City loan player and possible transfer target James Chambers has joined Leicester City on a free transfer.

Chambers arrived at Ninian Park on emergency loan from Premiership strugglers Watford last season when Cardiff were struggling with somewhat of an selection crisis.

Kerrea Gilbert was sidelined with a shoulder injury and Chambers was drafted in for 7 games in November. He played well and was consistent without being too noticable. He certainly fitted in with the squad and looked defensively sound.

Watford did not allow the Bluebirds to renew the loan and he was recalled (allowing Chris Gunter valuable first team experience).

It was rumoured that Cardiff were interested in a permanent deal in the summer, but that interest looked to have cooled after the initial signing of Tony Capaldi (with Ledley, Gunter and McNaughton also available as full-backs). It seems likely that Cardiff's interest would have increased if we hadnt signed Capaldi and with Chambers eventually moving on a free transfer - I would be very suprised if Jones had not enquired about Chambers.

Chambers has now joined the Foxes of Leicester City on a three year deal.
