Cardiff City transfer latest: Solskjaer refuses to rule out move for another Manchester United duo

Fresh reports have linked Wilfried Zaha and Fabio with a move to Cardiff - and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is giving nothing away.

Cardiff have now signed two players this January - both of them Norwegian - but the transfer activity does not look like stopping there.

After confirming the purchase of Mats Moller Daehli from Molde on Saturday, fresh reports linked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with loan moves for Wilfried Zaha and Fabio.

The Manchester United duo have made just seven appearances between them this season and Solskjaer's links with the club have reportedly put Cardiff in pole position to bring them to Wales.

Speculation has been rife that Zaha is on his way to the Bluebirds all January but, most recently, the Daily Mirror have reported that the United winger was in Cardiff on Friday to push through a deal.

On Saturday, meanwhile, the Daily Mail suggested that full-back Fabio is set to leave Old Trafford for a similar loan move to Cardiff - one that would last the season.

And, speaking to Sky Sports, Solskjaer refused to rule out a move for either United player.

"I can't say anything on them because they are players from Manchester United and I can't comment on players from other teams.

"I am looking at strengthening my squad but I can't say names. It is not about the number. I will work with the players I have here but, if the right one comes up, then I will do business, like I have with Magnus [Eikrem] and Mats."

Other rumours

Cardiff's main transfer news away from Zaha and Fabio has come from an unlikely source in Craig Bellamy. The Mirror have reported that the Welshman's relationship with the Cardiff board has deteriorated after he rejected the offer of becoming caretaker manager after the departure of Malky Mackay.

Whether that's the case or not, however, Bellamy's future is uncertain, with no new deal with the club being agreed as of yet.
