“The Club has great history, and when I got the call to come to Cardiff, I was so excited, I couldn’t resist. I’m looking forward to the challenge of the new season.
“The goal is to fight for the Premier League. I can’t wait to meet the supporters and to fight for the jersey."
Meanwhile, Cardiff's coach, Steve Morison praised the qualities of the 2019 AFCON Bronze medalist. "“He’s a great athlete, a really good left back, and can play in that left wing-back position as well. I’m really pleased that we’ve got competition for places.
“I want to get as many bodies in for the start of pre-season, because the first ten days of pre-season are going to be huge."
Collins leaves Paderborn after five years at the club, having started his journey in Croatia with Rijeka, back in 2012. For Paderborn, he played 127 games and scored twice.
