Cardiff have agreed terms with Everton on a loan deal for striker Oumar Niasse until the end of the season.

Niasse has struggled to make an impression this season and has played just seven times without scoring, with his last appearance coming in the 1-0 defeat at Brighton on December 29.

Sky Sports News understands that Cardiff are still working on a deal to sign Nantes striker Emiliano Sala despite the imminent arrival of Niasse.
