Camarasa leaves Real Betis for Premier League new-boys Cardiff

August 9, 2018 0 By Sports Writer

Victor Camarasa has left Spanish club Real Betis for Premier League new-boys Cardiff City, the English club have confirmed.

The former Valencia midfielder passed a medical on Thursday morning before beginning his first training session with the Welsh side later in the afternoon.

Cardiff, who gained promotion to the Premier League last season are coached by Neil Warnock, who has a keen admiration for Camarasa and pushed for a move after failing to lure Marko Grujic from Liverpool on loan.

The 24-year-old began his career with Los Che, before moving to city rivals Levante where he made his senior debut for their B side in the Segunda division.

He would later sign a six-year deal and play a more prominent part in the senior side, where his performances gained him interest from Alaves, who agreed a one year deal in 2016.

Following that deal, midfielder Camarasa signed a five-year contract with Betis, but his time at the club has come to an end, for now.

The midfielder will now head straight into the squad for the first game of the season against Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

With his move, he becomes the only Spaniard at the club at present.
