The Wigan Athletic hitman would be a useful addition to the Cardiff City squad.

Popular bookmakers SkyBET have dramatically slashed the odds on the Bluebirds signing Latics forward Omar Bogle.

The 24-year-old moved to Wigan from Grimsby Town on transfer deadline day in January, for a fee believed to be in the region of £750,000, but only managed to score three goals in 14 outings for his club.

Sky Sports claim that Latics boss Paul Cook doesn't believe that Bogle fits into his system and philosophies, and has made him available for transfer this summer.

And SkyBET believe that he could very well be plying his trade in Wales this term, listing Cardiff as short as 1/5 to sign the pacey forward, ahead of Scunthorpe at 6/1.

Bogle possesses natural raw talent, blistering pace, and an admirable work ethic, but there are questions as to whether he has enough quality to cut it in the Championship.

He is valued at around £800,000 by his club according to Sky Sports, so he will surely be worth taking a risk on.

And who knows, his goals could make the difference between an average campaign and a very good one for Cardiff.
