Defender Danny Gabbidon is set to return to Cardiff City nearly a decade after leaving the club.

Gabbidon is due to sign a contract until the end of the season with an option to join the coaching set up at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The 35 year-old has trained with the Bluebirds this summer after being released by Crystal Palace.

Gabbidon made over 200 appearances for the south Wales club before joining West Ham in 2005.

Cardiff City Stadium welcomes Premier League football for the first time in its history today when Manchester City travel to Wales to take on the Bluebirds.

The last time they met was in the FA Cup in 1994 when Cardiff beat the side 1-0.

If Craig Bellamy is chosen in the side, he'll face his former club where he spent two seasons between 2009-2011.

27,000 fans are expected to descend on the capital today and the British Transport Police have stepped up their presence on public transport ahead of the busy football season.

The match kicks off today at 4pm.

Over 2,000 people are expected to take part in a walk through Cardiff today to celebrate 100 years of the bluebird logo for Cardiff City FC.

The supporters group Bluebirds Unite will walk from Cardiff Castle to the stadium ahead of the club's Premier League debut at home to Manchester City.

In 2012, Cardiff City FC was rebranded by the club's Malaysian owner Sri Vincent Tan that saw the side's kit change from blue to red and the traditional bluebird crest replaced with a dragon.
