Highly rated defender Festus Arthur joined The Bluebirds in August 2021 on a season-long loan from Championship outfit Hull City.

The powerful and athletic youngster is predominantly a centre-back but can also operate effectively in a holding midfield role when required.

Born in Hamburg, it was a spell in the colours of Stockport County which put Arthur on the radar of some bigger clubs as he starred for The Hatters during a memorable 2019/20 campaign.

Arthur made 35 appearances in total and became a huge fans favourite at Edgeley Park, winning two Young Player of the Year awards on the back of his excellent form.

In the summer of 2020, Hull won the race for his signature when he penned a three-year deal with The Tigers and now they are keen for him to gain more senior experience out on loan.
