SOLIHULL Moors have swooped to sign Wales under-21 international right-back Cameron Coxe on a two-year deal, with the option of a further year in place.

The 21-year-old’s career-long spell with Cardiff City came to an end when he departed the Bluebirds in June.

Coxe joined the club’s youth academy at the age of seven before signing his first professional contract in February 2017.

He made his first team debut during a 2-1 defeat against Burton Albion in the second round of the EFL Cup in August 2017. In total, the defender made four senior appearances during his time at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Coxe has represented Wales at under-17, under-19, under-20 and currently under-21 level, as well as being named in a preliminary senior Wales squad in May 2018 for a friendly against Mexico.

He now moves on to pastures new with the Moors ahead of another exciting campaign and is looking forward to the challenge.

Coxe said: “I’m over the moon to sign for the club. The ambition of the club is great. I can see everything is looking top-notch so I just can’t wait to get started.

“I was at Cardiff at seven and that’s all I’ve known, but I’m ready for a new start to be fair.

“Right now, I’m hungrier than ever and I can’t wait for the new season to start and get this football club to where it should be.”

Manager Jimmy Shan added: “I am delighted to have secured the services of Cameron, who is highly regarded by Cardiff and Wales.

“Cameron is an athletic offensive full-back who is extremely powerful and technically excellent.

“Cameron has had lots of interest from League clubs, but he has bought into the project and ambition at Moors.

“I am really excited to watching Cameron develop this season.”

The transfer is subject to international clearance, which is not expected to be an issue.
