Revell joins Cardiff City

9 January 2015

Wembley hero swaps South Yorkshire for South Wales...

Alex Revell has joined fellow Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee.

The striker, a hero of the League One play-off winning side, has left the club after nearly three-and-a-half years with the Millers.

Undoubtedly the pinnacle of Revell’s achievements whilst with the club was the brace that helped earn promotion to The Championship following a penalty shootout victory over Leyton Orient in May last year. The brace included one of the greatest goals ever to be witnessed at Wembley Stadium when he volleyed in an unstoppable equaliser from more than 30 yards.

Revell signed for the club in August 2011 from Leyton Orient playing over 150 times in league and cup, earning back-to-back promotions in 2013 and 2014.

He leaves Rotherham United FC with the very best wishes from everyone at the club.

“Back last April the football club and the representatives of Alex had been in negotiations to extend the players contract beyond the summer of 2015 but despite vigorous efforts by both parties sadly an agreement could not be reached. 

“In a situation such as this any football club must take advantage of any considerable asset and the final offer from Cardiff City met the valuation of our Chairman who has to be said at all times drives a fierce bargain.

“Alex Revell has simply been stunning for Rotherham United and has given me as his manager some wonderful performances, loyalty, commitment and passion.

“I have spoken to Alex and he knows as a man what my thoughts of him and his young family are. Everyone at Rotherham United is indebted to him and he will be welcome back with open arms at any time in the future.

“He has now joined a fantastic club in Cardiff and he gets the personal rewards that come with such a transfer, we wish him well for the future.”
