Former Leeds United defender Sol Bamba joins Cardiff City

:Headline: Former Leeds United defender Sol Bamba joins Cardiff City:
Former Leeds United captain Sol Bamba ends his short exile from football by linking up with Championship rivals Cardiff City as a free agent.

Cardiff City have completed their second free signing in the space of 24 hours with the capture of Sol Bamba on a two-year deal.

The Ivory Coast international has been without a club since departing Championship rivals Leeds United in September due to "personal reasons".

Bamba joins Junior Hoilett in linking up with boss Neil Warnock, who also has his eyes on two other free agents - ex-Sunderland defender Kieran Richardson and Morocco international Marouane Chamakh.

Speaking to his new side's official website, Bamba said: "I'm excited to be here. I always want to work with the gaffer, so as soon as this chance arose I jumped at it. I know the league very well and am looking forward to offering my experience and leadership to Cardiff City."

Boss Warnock, who has only been in charge of the Welsh outfit for a week, added: "I tried to sign Sol a few years ago when he was at Leicester, on a couple of occasions.

"They didn't come off then, but now is the right time and opportunity to bring him in. Sol's a leader and he's another good addition for us."

Cardiff parted company with Paul Trollope during the international break following a poor start to the campaign, which has left Cardiff inside the bottom three ahead of Friday's visit of rivals Bristol City. body check tags ::
