Kagisho Dikgacoi: Crystal Palace midfielder agrees to join Cardiff City

The South Africa international will officially move to the Championship side on a free transfer when his current deal with Palace expires at the end of this month.

The 29-year-old was out of contract at Selhurst Park and turned down a new offer before dropping down a division to sign for Cardiff on a three-year deal.

Dikgacoi becomes Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fifth signing of the summer following the arrival of Adam Le Fondre, Javi Guerra, Guido Burgstaller and Federico Macheda.

The midfielder joined Palace on loan from Fulham in February 2011 and the deal was made permanent five months later for a £600,000 fee.

Dikgacoi, who started his career with Cardiff Spurs in South Africa, scored eight goals in 114 appearances during his time at Palace.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
