Cardiff City have allowed goalkeeper Lee Camp to join Sunderland on loan for the remainder of the season. 

Camp who has yet to play for Cardiff City’s first team since joining the club on a free transfer from Rotherham United after suffering a number of injuries.

The 33-year-old has previously worked under Neil Warnock but has only been able to play for the U23s side this season and has been unable to displace Neil Etheridge in the Cardiff goal.

Sunderland have been on the lookout for a goalkeeper throughout the whole of Deadline Day but have finished a deal for Camp.

The 33-year-old will have a year remaining on his contract, once he returns to Cardiff City following the end of his loan spell at the Stadium of Light.
