Kennedy Wings In

31 January 2017

ARGYLE left it late on transfer deadline day to sign Matty Kennedy on loan from Cardiff City.

The 22-year-old winger joined the Pilgrims minutes after the conclusion of the Bluebirds' Sky Bet Championship match against Preston on Tuesday evening.

The Scot, who was an unused substitute for Cardiff in their 2-0 win over Preston, will remain with Argyle until the end of the 2016-17 season, and will wear shirt number 33.

Born in Irvine, Kennedy joined his local club Kilmarnock and made his debut aged 17. He signed for Everton after making a handful of appearances for Killie, and although he did not make a first-team Toffees appearance, he did gain further experience with loan spells at Tranmere Rovers, Milton Keynes Dons and Hibernian. 

At the end of the 2015 January transfer window, Matty was signed by Cardiff City, and played 14 times for the Bluebirds in the 2015-16 season. 

Last season, after playing twice for Cardiff, Kennedy went on loan to Port Vale, for whom he played 12 matches. This campaign, he has made three further substitute appearances for Cardiff, including in City's last two Sky Bet Championship games. 

Matty has represented Scotland at every age group level from Under-15 to Under-21. 

Welcome, Matty.
