Cardiff have signed Scotland international defender Callum Paterson on a free transfer from Hearts.
The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal following the expiration of his contract with the Scottish club.
He becomes the third new signing for Cardiff after the arrivals last week of Neil Etheridge and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

Full-back Paterson, who made over 150 first team appearances for Hearts, told Cardiff’s official website: “I’m absolutely delighted and buzzing to be part of this big club.
“It’s nice and early so I’ve got a lot of time to bed in, get to know my way around the area and introduce myself. It’s great timing and I’m happy to be here.
“Anyone that has watched me has seen that I like to attack. I’m athletic and I like to go forward and try and get on the end of crosses.
“‘I’m a great attacker and I like to score my goals, so hopefully I can come here and score a few too.”
