Mahon in Cardiff loan switch

Last updated : 21 January 2003 By FootyMAD
Mahon has made just three appearances in Blackburn's first team this season, and a number of clubs were keen to take him for the rest of the campaign.

"Alan Mahon is joining us for three months and will link up with us at the team hotel before Tuesday's second division match at Port Vale," Cardiff manager Lennie Lawrence told the club's official website.

"But, if we sign the paperwork on Tuesday he will be unavailable for the last two games of the season against Wigan and Crewe.

"So we may leave the actual signing until later in the week so that he becomes available for the Wigan game. This will also give the lad the chance to meet and train with his new colleagues."
