Marshall signs long-term deal at Cardiff

5 February 2014 19:40

Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall has committed his future to the club by signing a new deal until 2018.

The 28-year-old moved to the Welsh capital from Norwich City in 2009 and helped Cardiff clinch promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship title last season.

The Scotland international has played all but one of Cardiff's top-flight games this season and was quick to express his joy at the deal.

"I'm delighted to have committed my future to Cardiff City," Marshall told the club's official website.

"I've had a fantastic four and half years here already.

"It's a privilege to be part of what we're trying to achieve and the fans have been brilliant to me from day one.

"We've a lot of hard work left to do this season, but we're a confident group and have plenty of ability and belief."

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Marshall's contract extension will be a boost to a side that sit second bottom in the table and has won just five Premier League games this campaign.

"This is fantastic - we're delighted to have been able to tie David down for the foreseeable future," Solskjaer commented.

"He really enjoys being at Cardiff City and was very keen to stay with our football club. I was very happy when things were concluded.

"I think this gives everybody at the club a boost. We know now that we have one of the best goalkeepers in the country committed to us for years to come.

"This is welcome news ahead of Saturday’s south Wales derby (against Swansea City) and it's great timing for him and us as we look towards the remainder of the season.

"We're trying to build towards the future of course, and David has shown that he's one of the very best. This is a signal that we are serious as to our intentions for the future and that we are committed to keeping the best players here at Cardiff City."

Cardiff secured their first league victory under Solskjaer with a 2-1 home success against Norwich City last Saturday and could move out of the bottom three by beating Swansea this weekend.
