Owls Target Opts For Bluebirds

Owls target Kevin McNaughton has agreed a deal to join Championship rivals Cardiff City when his contract expires on July 1 from Aberdeen.

Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock announced the highly-rated defender was on his list of potential targets, but the signing of Madjid Bougherra last week quietened the speculation.

The 23-year-old will move to Ninian Park on July 1 when his contract with the SPL side expires.

Cardiff owner Sam Hammam told the official Cardiff City website: 'This should be a clear sign of our intentions this summer, we will have an aggressive recruitment drive. We are targeting a top-six finish next season and I will do anything I can to facilitate that. I have the experience to do it, and [manager] Dave Jones is the best man to make it happen.'

McNaughton revealed he turned down a number of offers from other clubs, but didn't mention the Owls.
