Norwich City winger Yanic Wildschut is set to sign for Championship side Cardiff City on loan.

According to The Eastern Daily Press, Wildschut is on the verge of completing a move to Cardiff until the end of the season.

The report claims that there will also be an option to make the deal permanent in the summer.

Wildschut has been frozen out of the first-team picture by Daniel Farke, with Cardiff now offering him a route out to gain regular game time.

Norwich signed Wildschut in January 2017 for £7m from Wigan as a replacement for Robbie Brady, who joined Burnley for £13m.

The Dutchman has failed to live up to the hype since then, netting twice – against Bristol City and Sheffield United – in 29 appearances for the club.

The move is expected to go through later this week, alongside the sale of Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield in a £12m deal.
