Armand Traore has re-joined Championship club Cardiff City as a free agent, signing a short-term contract.

The Senegal international had his first spell with the Bluebirds in 2018, after arriving on loan from Nottingham Forest.

The 30-year-old former Juventus and Arsenal defender helped the Welsh outfit gain promotion to the Premier League during his stay.

On Friday, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock announced the return of the full-back after impressing during his six-week trial with the club.

"It’s a short contract in case anything happens. Fans know him. He’s got a very good left foot and loads of ability,” Warnock told club website.

"He has trained really hard in the time he has been with us. It’s an appearance-based contract as well, so it’s up to him."

Traore could play a part when Cardiff take on Bristol City in a Championship game on Sunday.
