FRAIZER Campbell has left Sunderland to join Championship leaders Cardiff City.

The striker, whose contract with the Black Cats was due to expire in the summer, has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal at the Cardiff City Stadium.

He leaves Sunderland for an undisclosed fee, which is understood to be around £600,000.

Campbell, who is a full England international, joined Sunderland from Manchester United in 2009 and scored ten goals in his 71 senior appearances for the club.

In one sense, it frees up a wage to get another striker in for us (S'land).
We paid, I think, £6m for him so its disappointing that we only got a small amount back, but after those injuries I don't think he was quite the same. 10 goals in 70 apps is not a good return. Still, he's a great lad and works hard and I hope by playing regularly he can hit the heights.
