Cardiff City have signed French midfielder Loic Damour on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old joins the Bluebirds from French Ligue 2 club Bourg-Peronnas and has already linked up with Neil Warnock's squad for pre-season training.


Born in the northern French city of Chantilly, Damour has represented France up to Under-20 level.

Damour has spent his career playing his football in France and Belgium.

His previous clubs include Strasbourg, White Star Bruxelles, Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël.

Damour said he was pleased to have signed for the Welsh club and was looking forward to the challenges of the forthcoming season.

"I'm very happy to be here, it's a beautiful place," Damour told the club's official website.

"I'm happy to come to play in the Championship, it's a very good opportunity for me and my career.

"I'm a midfield player. I am box-to-box. I like defending and attacking. I have so much energy to give."

Damour becomes the Welsh Championship club's sixth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Neil Etheridge, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Callum Paterson, Lee Camp and Danny Ward.

Cardiff also announced on Thursday that veteran striker Rickie Lambert has had his contact terminated by mutual consent.
