Crewe Alexandra are delighted to announce the loan signing of Eli King.
The 19-year-old Cardiff City midfielder has penned a deal until January, becoming Alex Morris’s ninth summer signing.
The Wales Under-21 international, an all-action box-to-box midfielder, has made four Championship appearances for The Bluebirds.
Assistant Manager Lee Bell said: “He’s been on the radar for some time and we are happy to get it over the line.
“Cardiff were initially reluctant to let him out because he’s been in and around their squad throughout pre-season, so we had to be patient.
“He has plenty of pedigree and is just the type of player we have been looking for to add to the squad.”
Eli has trained with his new teammates at Reaseheath today (Thursday) and will wear the number 20 shirt. He will go straight into the squad ahead of Saturday’s visit to Bradford City.
Everybody at Crewe Alexandra would like to welcome Eli to the club and wish him all the best for the season.
