Cardiff have agreed a deal to sign Everton striker Oumar Niasse on loan until the end of the season.

According to Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, Niasse will undergo a medical in Cardiff on Wednesday night ahead of the deal being confirmed.

Niasse has been left out of the Everton squad for the majority of this season and is now set to be offered an escape route by Cardiff this month.

This comes a matter of hours after it was reported that Cardiff are closing in on an agreement to sign Nantes forward Emiliano Sala for a fee in the region of £18m.

Niasse has failed to impress at Everton but did shine while on loan at Hull City previously. He’ll be hoping he can rediscover some of his best form away from Goodison Park to get his career back on track.
