Cardiff City goalkeeper Peter Enckelman has been released by his former club Blackburn Rovers paving the way for a move to Cardiff City.


Enckelman previously stated he was happy with the Bluebirds and the club recently confirmed they would be offering a permanent contract to the Finnish stopper.


Enckelman was a late addition to the squad after previous keepers Turnbull and Oakes failed to impress, and Kasper Schmeichel opted to return to Manchester City. The Finn made a good impact at Ninian Park, immediately shoring up a leaky defence and keeping a number of clean sheets.


Portsmouth seemed to identify a weakness in Enckelman and exploited it by testing him with numerous crosses. They were not well dealt with at all, and created several opportunities for Pompey – from one of which they scored.


Enckelman will compete with a young goalkeeper from the Premiership with Manchester United youngster Tom Heaton widely expected to link up with City.

  • Cant get rid of that image of that howler when playing for Villa against Birmingham. I do not think he is Prem class but more than competent in the Championship I think.

  • would you take him? I know he was partly to blame for the goal in the FA cup but then again, Kanu was very quick to the ball.

  • He’s almost certain to join Fear, whether we like it or not – one thing for sure, he LOVES the big games!!!
