Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City have confirmed on their official website the capture of striker Danny Ward from relegated outfit Rotherham United, penning a three-year deal in the Welsh capital for an undisclosed fee.
The 26-year-old has become Neil Warnock’s fifth addition this summer transfer window, following the likes of Lee Camp and Calum Paterson through the door in recent weeks.
Ward was an integral part of Rotherham’s squad despite finishing bottom of the Championship table and subsequently dropping down to the third tier, bagging twelve goals in all competitions to ensure interested parties remained knocking on the door for his services.
Prior to making the switch to the Millers in 2015, the attacker spent four years of his career at Huddersfield Town, but only netted on sixteen occasions in over 100 outings for the Yorkshire club.
Ward arrives under the management of Warnock for the second time, after the two spent working with each other during their spells at the New York Stadium.
He joins the squad that has already added League One duo Neil Etheridge and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing to their ranks this summer, and will thus be looking to improve upon their 12th place finish in the Championship last term when the new season gets underway in August.
