Cardiff City have confirmed the signing of striker Frazier Campbell from Sunderland.

The player has penned a three-and-a-half year contract at The Cardiff City Stadium, and will add competition to a strikeforce which has been missing key player Nicky Maynard for the majority of the season.

The 25-year old will be a fantastic aquisition for the ambitious Red Dragons who look on course to win promotion to the Premier League as they sit 10 points clear at the top of the Championship, ahead of nearest rivals Leicester City.

Campbell joins for a fee rumoured to be around £700,000, which is a small fee for a player who was once highly tipped after graduating through the Manchester United academy, before sustaining knee ligament injuries at Sunderland, who he joined for a fee of £3.5 million in 2009.

Only 11 months ago was he part of the full England squad where he made his debut against Holland, and has gone on to make 15 appearances for Sunderland this season.

He will add a further threat to the Cardiff City attack, who look on course to finally win promotion to England’s top flight.
