On the move: Campbell has joined Cardiff
Cardiff have signed Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
The 25-year-old England forward, moves to South Wales for an undisclosed fee having scored 10 times in 72 Sunderland appearances since joining from Manchester United.
Campbell came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford before signing as a professional for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in 2006.
He spent loan spells with Antwerp and
Tottenham but really made a name for himself at Hull, scoring 15 goals
in 32 starts and helping them reach the top flight.

'Thanks for having me Sunderland it's been emotional I will miss it all. All the best for the rest of the season lads #hawaythelads'
After recovering from injury he made his
full England debut against Holland 11 months ago but has scored just
once in 15 appearances this season for the Black Cats.
Despite Cardiff sitting 10 points clear at the top of the Championship, none of their forwards have scored on a regular basis.
Heidar Helguson is their top scorer with just seven goals in 24 starts.
