Game time

The point being is that he's more than happy to sit on the bench at Madrid (weird I know!) than move to England and play.

Don’t understand folk like that, going to Newcastle he’d be busy so a chance to showcase himself whether that be for a move or to displace Navas

Also the fact he has played for Spain before you'd think he might fancy a pop at least of being in the squad. Although I think De Gea, Reina and Kepa is looking pretty settled as their three now.

The unknown goalkeeper nobody realised had signed for Cardiff City this month

It's been a busy time for Cardiff City lately.

What with talk of the Premier League, injury bulletins and enormous games against promotion rivals, you'd be forgiven for missing one or two things.

Yet what many people have missed is the short-term transfer of a new goalkeeper at Cardiff City Stadium.

Chris Konopka is a name many Bluebirds fans won't be familiar with, but earlier this month he agreed a short-term deal as goalkeeping cover until the end of the season. He is available to play in Under-23 fixtures and in training, but isn't part of the first team Cardiff squad submitted to the Football League.

 

The 32-year-old gloveman, who has spent the majority of career in Major League Soccer, also lists Irish outfit Waterford United and Scottish club Ross County among his former sides. He actually won the 2016 Scottish League Cup with Ross County.

Konopka's first association with Cardiff City came back in the 2006/07 season when he had a trial at Ninian Park, before spells at Kansas City Wizards, New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC in American soccer.

 

The New Jersey-born keeper comes to the Welsh capital as goalkeeping back-up following Lee Camp's loan move to Sunderland. His previous club was FC Edmonton in the North American Soccer League (the second tier of US football).

Much like the short-term signing of Rolf Feltscher earlier in the season, it looks like Konopka has been brought in to allow some rest and competition in training for the regular first teamers.
