Killen closes on Bluebirds move
Chris Killen
Killen says Cardiff's ambitious plans have impressed him
Hibernian's out-of-contract striker Chris Killen says he is on the point of joining Cardiff City.

"I've spoken to Cardiff and hopefully everything will be sorted this week," Killen told the South Wales Echo.

"I still have my medical to come, but we have agreed personal terms. I want to be part of exciting times there."

The New Zealand international, 25, was close to joining Cardiff in January, but suffered an Achilles injury that has kept him out of action since.

I came to Cardiff a couple of months ago and liked what I heard

Killen scored 14 goals for Hibs last season and says he was disappointed to have only been offered a new one-year deal by the club.

He is also believed to have been in talks with Hearts who - like Cardiff - are thought to have offered a longer contract.

The Kiwi says he was swayed by the ambitious plans that have been put in place by the Bluebirds.

"I came to Cardiff a couple of months ago and met the manager, players and staff, and liked what I heard," said Killen.

"I saw the plans for the new stadium and the training ground, I want to be a part of those ambitious plans.

"It was disappointing not to have joined in January, the injury came at an unfortunate time."
