The 20-year-old trained with Cardiff earlier in the summer and showed enough to earn a permanent deal with the Premier League new boys.

Amondarain was part of the Uruguay squad which reached the final of the FIFA Under 20 World Cup in Turkey in July and has most recently been playing for Progreso.

He becomes Cardiff manager Malky Mackay's sixth summer signing following the club's promotion to the top flight.

Mackay has broken Cardiff's transfer record three times so far after bringing in striker Andreas Cornelius, defender Steven Caulker and midfielder Gary Medel.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
