His arrival follows the capture of Norwich winger Josh Murphy for £10m yesterday.

Neil Warnock is wasting no time in bolstering his Cardiff squad ahead of their return to the Premier League.

And the experienced manager is delighted with his latest acquisition.

He told the club’s official 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.

He spent three years at Ashton Gate prior to moving to Deepdale in 2015.
