Cardiff City have signed left-back Greg Cunningham from Preston North End.

Cunningham becomes Cardiff’s second signing of the summer, after Josh Murphy joined from Norwich this week.

The 27-year-old represents Republic of Ireland internationally, with four caps to his name.

Cardiff have paid Preston £3.5m for Cunningham, according to Sky Sports News.

Cunningham rose through the academy of Manchester City before moving to Bristol City in 2012. He will now play in the Premier League for the first time since leaving City having completed his transfer to Cardiff.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock told the club’s website: “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.

“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.”
