Cardiff agree deal for Danish striker Zohore

Cardiff City Stadium

HITC Sport understands Cardiff City have agreed deal for Danish forward.

Cardiff City have lined up a loan move for highly-rated Danish forward Kenneth Zohore, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Cardiff boss Russell Slade is in the market for striking reinforcements after allowing Kenwyne Jones and Joe Mason leave the club this month.

Despite being under a transfer embargo, Cardiff are able to bring in loan signings or free agents and they have agreed a deal with Danish side Odense BK to take Zohore on loan until the end of the season.

Zohore has scored seven goals in 16 games for Odense this season and the 6ft 2in target man will fill the void left by Jones' departure to Al Jazira.

The 21-year-old started his career at FC Copenhagen and has had spells at IFK Goteborg, Brondby and Fiorentina already in his fledging career.

Zohore never made a first-team appearance during his time at Fiorentina, but he has played in the Champions League for FC Copenhagen.

The Denmark Under-21 international is now due to undergo a medical at Cardiff before finalising a loan move to the Championship club.
