Cardiff City set to complete the signing of in-demand 12-goal striker



Cardiff City are on the verge of signing Danny Ward from Rotherham United, HITC Sport is reporting.

HITC Sport understands that Danny Ward will pen permanent terms with Cardiff City after Rotherham United were relegated to League One.

During Rotherham’s dire season in the second tier, where they finished well adrift at the bottom of the league table, Danny Ward was a rare shining light for them.

The former Huddersfield Town man netted twelve goals for the Millers, finishing as their top scorer this season.

Ward was a wanted man in January and he is again this summer.

Cardiff look set to beat off competition from a number of clubs to land the impressive striker, who can also play as a winger.

Neil Warnock has been active so far in this summer transfer window, wrapping up deals for Walsall goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, Rochdale winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Hearts right back Callum Paterson.

Danny Ward is expected to arrive soon as the Bluebirds’ fourth signing of the summer and he fits the bill as the type of player Neil Warnock wants to bring in.

Aside from Kenneth Zohore, Warnock’s attacking options were fairly goal-shy and he will be hoping that Ward can resolve this.

Warnock is set to reunite with the 26-year-old forward after working with him during his spell as Rotherham manager in the 2015/16 season.

Cardiff fans – would Ward be a good signing? Let us know below…
