On 23 May 2014, he joined Cardiff City on a three-year deal as Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s second signing of the summer, after Javi Guerra. Burgstaller said “My decision to join Cardiff City was never in question when the club first contacted me, it has always been a dream for me to play in this country. I’ve followed Cardiff in the Premier League last season and I’m very proud and honoured to be given the chance to wear the Cardiff City jersey – I’m a big admirer of the passion of the fans.” He made his debut in the Championship on 8 August, replacing Kenwyne Jones for the last 20 minutes of a 1–1 draw at Blackburn Rovers on the opening day of the season.
