Cardiff City have signed Reading midfielder Leandro Bacuna on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Manager Neil Warnock has been keen to add a full-back and midfield player before the transfer window closed.

Bacuna, 27, can operate in both areas and joins for a fee understood to be around the £4m mark.

Bacuna, who joined the Royals from Aston Villa, has made 28 appearances for Reading this season, scoring three goals.

"A few weeks ago, I was made aware of some interest and it has all gone from there. I'm very happy and looking forward to getting started," Bacuna said.

"Every game I play I give 100%, and I'll be fighting hard to help our team. I've played against the manager and you can see he always wants to win. He is so passionate. It's going to be great to work underneath him and hopefully he will push me on as a player."
