Solskjaer plans January swap deal for Cardiff City

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful of completing a striker swap deal, which would see Kenwyne Jones complete a move to the Bluebirds from Stoke, with Peter Odemwingie moving in the opposite direction, according to talkSPORT.

Solskjaer has been busy in the transfer market since his arrival at Cardiff, having signed Magnua Wolff Eikrem, Mats Moller Daehli and Jo Inge Berget.

A loan move for out of favour Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha is also expected to be completed before Friday’s 11pm deadline.

And Solskjaer is hopeful a striker swap deal can also be completed to help bolster the Welsh club’s chances of avoiding the drop.

“We’ve got to pass the medicals first,” said Solskjaer. “Both clubs have spoken together and Peter Odemwingie might be going the other way and hopefully Kenwyne Jones will join us.”

When asked where he saw Jones fitting into his plans at the Cardiff City Stadium, Solskjaer said: “Jones and Frazier Campbell have played together before but we need to [complete] the deal first and then maybe I can speak more about it.”

Jones has been out of favour at the Britannia since the arrival of Mark Hughes in the summer, and was recently disciplined by the club following his refusal to play in the recent league game with Liverpool.
