The Preston North End left-back has reportedly agreed personal terms to join Neil Warnock's side after a fee of around £4m was agreed between the two clubs.

Cardiff City were previously linked with West Bromwich Albion winger James McClean, however, the club signed Norwich City winger Josh Murphy on Tuesday for a fee believed to be worth around £11m.

Murphy is manager Neil Warnock's first signing since Cardiff won promotion back to the Premier League and the 23-year-old has said the manager has been superb with him so far.

“I’ve scored a couple against Cardiff, yeah, but now it’s all about scoring goals for us,” Josh reflected. “I can’t wait get going and hopefully hit the ground running.

“The manager [Neil Warnock] has been absolutely brilliant, especially the way he’s told me that he wants to play and use me. I can’t think of a better fit and can’t wait to get started.”
