Last updated : 29 June 2017 By Michael Morris

Neil Etheridge

Goalkeeper, aged 27. Signed from Walsall.

“We haven’t had a big goalkeeper, and this lad is 6”2,” said Neil Warnock.

“He’s always come out on top when we’re talking about goalkeepers and we’re delighted that he’s agreed to sign from 1st July. 

“He’s looking forward to the challenge ahead and trying to establish himself as the number one ‘keeper. He’s at a very good age and will be a very good addition to the squad.”

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing

Winger, aged 25. Signed from Rochdale

“I’ve watched him this season in particular and you get hunches about players, as a manager,” added Warnock. “I just feel that he can contribute a lot to us next season. 

“I think he’ll be a very good squad player and it’s up to him to get into the first-team and make the position his own. He’s only a young lad still, but he’s got explosive pace and a lot to prove and I think it’s the right place for him. I think the fans will enjoy watching him.”

Callum Paterson

Full back, aged 22. Signed from Hearts

"I’m absolutely delighted and buzzing to be part of this big club." said the Scottish international.


“It’s nice and early so I’ve got a lot of time to bed in, get to know my way around the area and introduce myself. It’s great timing and I’m happy to be here.

“Anyone that has watched me has seen that I like to attack,” continued the full-back.

“I’m athletic and I like to go forward and try and get on the end of crosses.

“I’m a great attacker and I like to score my goals, so hopefully I can come here and score a few too.”

Lee Camp

Goalkeeper, aged 32. Signed from Rotherham

"I’m really pleased to have signed for Cardiff City" said Camp. "The manager has always been fantastic with me and I’m delighted to work with him again.

“Having worked with him previously too, I’ve already got a really good relationship with Andy Dibble. He knows how to get the best out of me and we bounce off one another.

“I’m looking forward to playing in front of the Cardiff City supporters.”

Danny Ward

Striker, aged 26. Signed from Rotherham

"I’ve worked with Danny and I know what he’s about," said Neil Warnock. "During my time at Rotherham he was either scoring the goals or making them for the team.

“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.”
