Crawley Town have signed Cardiff City striker Ibrahim Meite on loan until January.

Meite, 21, joined Championship side Bluebirds earlier in the year after some impressive performances for then-Ryman League Premier Division Harrow Borough.

The addition of another frontman makes him the eighth player Reds head coach Harry Kewell has brought in this summer.

Meite played a huge role in helping Harrow Borough reach the first-round of the FA Cup last season, he then made his Championship debut for the Bluebirds in a 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic back in April.

Reds director of football, Selim Gayguz, is pleased to have landed another addition to the squad.

He said: "Ibrahim is a young exciting player with a lot of ability, which is proven by a Championship team like Cardiff’s desire to bring him from non-league in January this year.

"We are very happy to bolster our attacking options, it is a great opportunity for Ibrahim to gain some first-team experience and hopefully help the team to improve."

Meite will wear squad number 26 for the upcoming season.
