Championship leaders Cardiff City complete their second signing of deadline day by bringing in Craig Bryson on loan from Derby County.

Cardiff City have completed their summer transfer business with the loan signing of Craig Bryson from Derby County.

The Bluebirds announced the capture of the box-to-box midfielder bang on the 11pm transfer deadline, shortly after confirming the arrival of Blackburn Rovers wideman Liam Feeney in an identical deal.

Despite manager Neil Warnock claiming that it would be a quiet day of activity for the Welsh outfit, the Bluebirds brought in two new faces late on and also offloaded a number of fringe players, including Matthew Kennedy, Stuart O'Keefe, Matty Kennedy and Craig Noone.

Bryson completes what Warnock hopes will be a title-winning squad, bringing with him six years of experience at Championship level with Derby.

Speaking to Cardiff's official website, experienced boss Warnock said: "Of all the players I wanted to sign, Craig Bryson has been at the top of my list for a very long time.

"I never thought we'd be able to do the deal to get him over the line, so I must thank Vincent [Tan], Mehmet [Dalman] and Ken [Choo] for making it possible for us."

Cardiff top the Championship standings after five games following a perfect start to the season.
