Flop Cornelius heading out of Cardiff

Last Updated: Wed, 29 Jan 2014 16:28

FC Copenhagen have revealed they are close to re-signing striker Andreas Cornelius for less than half of the £8.5m fee he cost Cardiff.

The Danish youngster has struggled since arriving in Wales and the two clubs have opened talks over a return move for a mere £3.5million.

It would represent a £5million loss to the Bluebirds and underlines one of the reasons why Malky Mackay, who authorised the signature, is no longer at the club.

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week signed Kenwyne Jones to bolster his forward line, and has deemed Cornelius surplus to requirements.

And according to reports in Wales, the 20-year-old striker, who failed to score in 11 appearances, will be cast off, with his former club having taken pole position for his signature.

CSKA Moscow - who rivalled Cardiff for his signature in the summer - are also credited with an interest.
