The 27-year-old Republic of Ireland left-back has signed a three-year deal with the Bluebirds
Cardiff City have announced the signing of Republic of Ireland defender Greg Cunningham from Preston North End.
The 27-year-old left-back is the Bluebirds’ second summer arrival as they plan for their return to the Premier League this coming season.
Cunningham has signed a three-year deal with the Welsh capital club, for a fee in the region of £4million.
“It’s fair to say that I’ve been an admirer of Greg for a number of years and that he’s consistently been one of the best left-sided defenders for club and country,” manager Neil Warnock told the official Cardiff website.
“We’re delighted to have his experience and knowledge so as to supplement Joe Bennett who had a great time last season.
“I anticipate that Greg coming in will give us a lot of strength down that left-hand side.”
Cunningham’s arrival comes after Cardiff signed Norwich winger Josh Murphy on Tuesday in a deal thought to be worth around £11m.
