The twenty-six-year-old forward has committed to the Bluebirds until the summer of 2020, becoming the Club’s fifth signing of the summer. He’ll join fellow recruits Neil Etheridge, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Callum Paterson and Lee Camp when the squad returns for pre-season training at the end of June.

Bradford-born Danny links up with Neil Warnock for a second time, having worked under him in 2016 during the Bluebirds Boss’ time in charge at the New York Stadium.

Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk, Neil said of his latest signing: “I’ve worked with Danny and I know what he’s about. During my time at Rotherham he was either scoring the goals or making them for the team.

Danny Ward signing at Cardiff City Stadium.

“He played wide left, right, in the hole, up front; Danny’s a crowd-pleaser with very good energy levels, but I also think there’s a lot more to come from him.

“I’ve been chasing Danny since Christmas and I think we’ve finally got him now for an excellent price.

“We tried a few systems last season and I think we’re going to need that variety again; Danny gives us that flexibility in the attacking areas that we’re going to need.

“Danny knows what I want and this is a great opportunity for him.”

Having completed his move at Cardiff City Stadium, Danny added: “I’m really glad to get everything sorted before pre-season starts and looking forward to getting going.

“I’ve played at Cardiff City Stadium a few times and always enjoy it; it’s a lovely place to play. Hopefully we can fill it up in the new season and really get going.

Danny Ward completing his medical with Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals.

“The Gaffer, Blacky (Kevin Blackwell) and Jeppo (Ronnie Jepson) really turned things round at Rotherham when they came in and I loved playing for them. I’m looking forward to it again at my new club.

“I already know Mozza (Sean Morrison), Pilks (Anthony Pilkington), Pelts (Lee Peltier), Gunnar (Aron Gunnarsson) and a few others. Coming to a place where you already know people makes it a bit easier; I’m looking forward it.”

Takes the pressure off Ken a bit and gives us more flexibility up top.

What will our system be if both play at the same time?

If he was banging on the goals for a relegated team, then hopefully he can do them for us too

Good to see him reject a couple of other clubs, both of whom were prepared to offer more than us. All down to Warnock (and his agent being a City fan!)

I think Warnock will be looking for another striker to be in the first 11 with Ward starting on the bench or am i wrong?

He put away 12 last season for a relegated team, he can anywhere in the final third, I expect him to be a starter personally :taxi:
