Transfer window: United's Fabio joins Cardiff, Zaha likely to sign soon



Cardiff City have signed Manchester United's Brazilian left back Fabio and Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones, the Premier League club's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Monday.

Cardiff also hope to recruit Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on loan before the end of the transfer window on Friday.

"Fabio and Kenwyne will join training today. I have just met them downstairs and that is more or less done," Solskjaer told a news conference in Manchester before the Premier League game against United on Tuesday.

Norwegian Solskjaer, who took over at Cardiff this month, said the Zaha deal was not yet finalised.

"We hope to get that done in the next 24 hours or so, so he can be ready for the weekend," the former Manchester United striker said.

Cardiff have slipped to the bottom of the table and are in danger of relegation following their promotion to the Premier League for the first time last year.

Swansea Sign French Striker Ngog

Swansea City have completed the signing of French striker David Ngog from Bolton Wanderers, the Premier League club said on Monday.

The former Paris St Germain and Liverpool forward has joined Swansea for an undisclosed fee until the end of the season.

"It's a delight for me," Ngog told the Swansea website. "I think Swansea are a very good club. They have shown over the last couple of years that they are a good Premier League side.

"Swansea are a team who like to keep the ball and play good football. The manager (Michael Laudrup) was obviously a top player and as a manager he has proven he is very good as well. It will be really interesting to work with him."

Swansea have slipped to 15th in the Premier League table and have been short of attacking options since losing last season's leading scorer Michu to injury last month.

Ngog could make his debut in the home league game against fellow strugglers Fulham on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Ngog, who scored 19 goals in 94 games during his three years at Liverpool, joined Championship club Bolton for 4.0 million pounds in 2011.
