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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
