John Brayford: Excited by challenge of playing in the Premier League

The 25-year-old right-back joins the Bluebirds in a deal believed to be around £1.5m and will link up with the squad ahead of Saturday's pre-season friendly at Cheltenham Town.

Brayford enjoyed a successful spell at Pride Park, making 117 appearances for County, and was a regular in the Rams' defence last season.

But he admits the move to Cardiff was too good to turn down and is relishing the challenge of playing in the Premier League.

Brayford told the club's official website: "When I heard Cardiff were interested in signing me then I was obviously very interested, especially at the prospect of playing in the Premier League and testing myself at the highest level.

"Derby will always be a special club to me, but this was an opportunity I couldn't ignore."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
