Cardiff City have officially confirmed the completion of a deal to sign FC Copenhagen forward Andreas Cornelius.

The Welsh side are thought to have forked out as much as £8.5m for the 20 year old, who finished last season as the top scorer in the Danish Superliga after netting 18 goals to help his side to secure the title.

Malky Mackay will be keen to strengthen his squad ahead of what could prove a tough first season in the Premier League and a move to capture the young forward is an ambitious one given that a number of other English top tier sides were said to be keen on Cornelius.

The 6ft 4in forward could well be ideally suited to life in English football and Mackay will hope the Dane can hit the ground running.
