Cardiff City set to sign Bangor City goalkeeper Matthew Hall – reports
Bangor City goalkeeper Matthew Hall looks set to leave the North Wales club and join English Premier League side Cardiff City.
The former West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper looks set to remain in Wales, having had a stellar season for the Citizens, helping them to a second-place finish in the Welsh Premier League.
Cardiff have already signed Queens Park Rangers keeper Alex Smithies, as well as signing Brian Murphy to a new deal. It is expected that Hall would feature for the developmental side.
The Daily Mail says that Scottish Premier League side Hamilton Academical had also been interested in Hall, but the 20-year-old looks set to play for the capital-based side.
Bangor City are to receive a small fee from the transfer, Hall’s contract with Bangor City has expired.
In total, he played in 13 games, keeping five clean sheets. He was nominated for the Welsh Premier League Young Player of the Season, but lost out to The New Saints’ Tom Holland.
Hall is the second player to be linked with a move to Cardiff City, after The New Saints’ Ryan Pryce was linked with a move, after featuring for Jamie Vardy’s V9 academy.
Former Bangor City manager Andy Legg is part of the coaching staff at Cardiff City’s developmental side, alongside former Cambrian & Clydach boss Jarred Harvey.
Bangor City’s demotion to the Cymru Alliance, allows Hall to depart Nantporth after one season with the club, after being signed by former manager Kevin Nicholson.
