Cardiff City are close to completing the loan signing of Norwich City winger Yanic Wildschut in a deal that could be made permanent in the summer.
Neil Warnock has been searching high and low for signings ahead of this weekend’s visit of Sunderland and it looks as if he’s got his first in the bag.
The Bluebirds are said to be close to completing the loan move of Yanick Wildschut with a possibility of making the move permanent in the summer, according to edp24.
Wildshut was a target of Neil Warnock’s when he shone for Wigan Athletic last season, but the Bluebirds were priced out by rivals Norwich City who were reported to have paid £7 million for the winger.
However, the final fee is more likely to cost Norwich £4 million as they consider the Dutchman’s departure.
The 26-year-old has only made 13 league starts for the Canaries this season and a loan move to South Wales could provide him with more regular football.
Neil Warnock wants Wildschut, who has previously played for Middlesbrough, WIgan Athletic and Heerenveen, to add attacking options to the front-line, claiming last week that he wants more goals in his promotion-chasing side.
The Dutchman isn’t known for scoring goals, but his pace and power out wide will give Warnock another option to support the likes of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Junior Hoilett who have been heavily relied upon.
The move to bring Wildschut to the Cardiff City Stadium is reportedly set to be completed by the weekend.
