Aron on signing for Cardiff. Aron Gunnarsson has said that speaking to new Cardiff City boss Malky MacKay helped him decide to sign for the South Wales side. Speaking to Wales On-Line, Gunnarsson, who was out of contract at Coventry City, who has now joined up with his new team-mates for pre-season matches in Southern Spain, said:“I had to get back and collect clean clothes. “I got back at 1am, had a couple of hours sleep and was up at 3.30am to join the squad for the trip to Spain. “I’m really happy to be with Cardiff. I spoke to the gaffer a few times and he seemed keen to sign me. “He talked about watching me play and those talks helped me make my decision. I can’t wait to get started.” City and Cardiff have, it is understood, already agreed the level of compensation which is payable due to Gunnarsson being under twenty four years old.
