Cardiff City have agreed on a loan deal for Oumar Niasse.
The Everton striker will see himself playing for the Bluebirds for the next six months with an option to make the deal permanent.
Cardiff City have agreed on a deal to bring the out-of-favour Everton striker Oumar Niasse to the club on a loan deal until the end of the season. The Bluebirds also have the option to make the deal a permanent one for an amount of around £10m if the Senegalese player can deliver the goods for them.
The 28-year-old has not started a single match in the Premier League under current manager Marco Silva and had fallen down the pecking order behind the likes of Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun. His last appearance for the Merseyside club goes back to December 29 in their 1-0 defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Cardiff City have been suffering from the lack of a quality finisher and have been linked with a number of strikers including Nantes’ star forward Emiliano Sala. However, talks with the Ligue 1 outfit have not progressed much and the loan move for Oumar Niasse might be an indication of the move for Sala not eventually falling through.
