Cardiff manager Malky Mackay had already confirmed a deal had been agreed before the necessary paperwork was completed on Monday.

Moore, 23, told Cardiff City Player: "I'm delighted to be at Cardiff City - to play in the Premier League has always been my goal.

"It's exciting to think that I'll be working with quality goalkeepers like David Marshall and Joe Lewis on a daily basis and I know that I can develop and learn from them."

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

"My thanks go to Brentford for the way they went about their business and we are delighted to get Simon in for the start of our season.

"He is one for the future and we have three quality senior goalkeepers in our squad."

Moore becomes Cardiff's third summer signing as they prepare for their debut Premier League season, with striker Andreas Cornelius and defender John Brayford having already arrived.
