Cardiff City pay Motherwell money owed for Paul Quinn

Motherwell have received the balance of the transfer fee due to them from Cardiff City for defender Paul Quinn, who left the Lanarkshire club in 2009.

The Welsh club paid £100,000 to Motherwell last week as the first instalment of the £175,000 still owed.

Cardiff failed to pay agreed instalments, with £100,000 due in January and £75,000 in the summer.

Motherwell issued a writ against the Welsh club earlier this month to force payment of the debt.

Last week, the Motherwell chairman John Boyle lost patience with Cardiff and publicly criticised them for their lack of action.

He was offended that the Welsh outfit did not turn up at Hamilton Sheriff Court to defend the action the Scottish Premier League club had taken against them.

Boyle's outburst seems to have produced the result he wanted, with Cardiff now having cleared their debt to the Lanarkshire club.

The statement from Motherwell was issued shortly after Cardiff signed Craig Bellamy on loan from Manchester City.

Quinn became Dave Jones' fifth summer signing at Cardiff in 2009 after the Motherwell captain signed a three-year deal.

The full-back joined for an estimated fee of £300,000, with £125,000 of the total fee paid to Motherwell in June 2009.
