Cardiff City snap up Irish international Greg Cunningham

By Joshua Bunting

Cardiff City have made defender Greg Cunningham their second signing in as many days.

The Republic of Ireland international joins the the Premier League new boys on a three-year deal from Preston North End for around £4million.

"I’ve been an admirer of Greg for a number of years and he’s consistently been one of the best left-sided defenders for club and country," manager Neil Warnock told the club’s official website.

"We're delighted to have his experience and knowledge so as to supplement Joe Bennett who had a great time last season."

Cunningham played twice in the 2009/10 Premier League for Manchester City after coming through their academy.

He made 103 league appearances for Preston, scoring four goals after joining from Bristol City in 2015.

Cunningham follows Josh Murphy through the doors at the Cardiff City Stadium after the Bluebirds signed the winger from Norwich yesterday.
