Three-year deal
Earnshaw, 23, has agreed terms on a three-year contract and joins the Premiership club after impressing with 83 goals in 176 league games for Cardiff. Earnshaw has also excelled at international level, scoring seven times in 13 appearances for Wales, including a hat-trick in the 4-0 thrashing of Scotland in February.
