Fabio is on the move - Action Images

Fábio da Silva is on the verge of completing his move to Premier League Cardiff City on a permanent deal.

Various reports suggest he will be officially announced soon, and it seems likely after this evening’s fixture between Manchester United and Cardiff as he has already been training with the Welsh club.

His former manager David Moyes praised the 23-year-old when speaking to Manchester United’s official website and called him a “great servant” to the club.

“We’re delighted for Fabio because he has been a great servant,” said the Manchester United boss.

“His brother (Rafael da Silva) is doing a great job for us here as well.

“We wish him (Fábio) well. He had one or two options but, in the end, we felt we couldn’t get him enough games.

“I said to the players, if you feel I’m not getting you enough games, come and see me. Fabio felt that so he’s got a move to Cardiff.”

The versatile Brazilian has missed out on various honours at Old Trafford due to a lack of games however he leaves Manchester with a Premier League medal for the 2010/11 season and a FA Community Shield title too.

Extremely highly rated as a youngster, the twin brother of Rafael will hope he is given opportunities in Wales and rediscover the talent that earmarked him as a star for the future.
