Cardiff City are set to make their first signing of the season after agreeing a fee with FC Copenhagen for striker Andreas Cornelius, according to Sky Sports.

The 20-year-old is currently in the Welsh capital to undergo a medical and if all goes well he should wrap up the move before the weekend.

The young Dane is thought to be one of Europe’s brightest prospects after impressing during his first full season in the Danish Superliga, scoring 18 goals in 32 appearances and breaking into the national side and his acquisition would represent quite the coup for the Premier League new boys.

FC Copenhagen sporting director Carsten V. Jensen told tipsbladet.dk: “It was never the plan to sell Andreas but sometimes a situation arises where it wouldn’t be responsible to reject an offer like that.

“We wouldn’t normally sell a player so quickly after they’ve broken through to the first team. The last example of this was when we sold Christian Poulsen after the turn of the millennium.

“But this was a situation where the offer was so big that it would have been irresponsible to turn down. That is how it is.”
