Cardiff sign Glombard and Gilbert
New Cardiff striker Luigi Glombard
Striker Luigi Glombard has quit Nantes to join Cardiff
Cardiff City have strengthened their striking options by signing 21-year-old Luigi Glombard from Nantes.

Glombard, born in Montreuil-sous-Bois, joined the Nantes academy in 2000 and made his senior debut in 2002.

He was part of the France side that won the 2001 Under-17 World Championships, playing alongside the likes of Anthony Le Tallec and Florent Sinama Pongolle.

Cardiff have also brought in versatile Arsenal full-back Kerrea Gilbert on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old broke into the Arsenal first-team last season, with an appearance in the Champions League tie against Ajax among his eight outings.

He also played against Cardiff in Arsenal's FA Cup third round win.

Glombard has struggled to hold down a first-team place at Nantes, scoring twice in 29 games over four seasons.
