Highly-rated goalkeeper Simon Moore signed for Premier League newboys Cardiff City from League One outfit Brentford on Monday becoming their third signing since they won promotion.

The 23-year-old - who joins Denmark striker Andreas Cornelius and England defender John Brayford as the new faces at the club - had been watched by Cardiff manager Malky Mackay for a year.

Moore - who signed a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee - is likely to fight with Joe Lewis for second choice spot behind present number one Scotland international David Marshall.

"I'm delighted to be at Cardiff City - to play in the Premier League has always been my goal," Moore told Cardiff City's official website.

"It's exciting to think that I'll be working with quality goalkeepers like David Marshall and Joe Lewis."

Mackay, who guided Cardiff to the 2012 League Cup final where they lost to Liverpool on penalties, said that Moore had great potential.

"We have been watching Simon for a year or so, he is a real up-and-coming goalkeeper," Mackay said.

"He's one that I think is a real prospect. For the future of the club, I've got three really good goalkeepers now; Simon comes in and I think he can kick on again. My thanks to Brentford for the way they went about their business, they were very professional and it was done very quickly...we are delighted to get Simon in for the start of our season."
