Schmeichel set for Cardiff

Cardiff City are on the brink of signing Manchester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel on a one-month loan deal.

Officials of the Premier League club have confirmed the move is '95 per cent done' with just the final stages of paperwork to complete.

The young Dane, who signed a new four-year contract with City in the summer, will go straight into the Cardiff squad for Saturday's match against Scunthorpe.

Schmeichel had been due to join Coventry but that deal collapsed earlier this week due to the club's financial problems, which have led to a transfer embargo from the FA. -Sky Sports.

Far from giving up on Schmeichel, Eriksson claims the move was designed to give him more games, but is still a big drop from occupying the number 1 shirt a few weeks ago to effectively slip down to third in the pecking order thanks to the performances of Joe Hart and return to fitness of Andreas Isaksson.

vote it up!

Good luck Kaspar!

Looking forward to the battle between Hart & Isaacsson. Whatever happens, City won't be found wanting at the back for the foreseeable future.

Also hearing that West Brom would love to hang on to Ishmael for a while. Probably a good move at the moment, and it may mean that Sven has to lay out less cash in January. Things are looking good team!

I would take Kasper at the Boro in a heartbeat if City were selling.

Schwarzer is so done with Boro. That first goal v Chelsea last week reminded me of the effort put in by the kid who is playing GK even though he's wearing his school trousers that can't get dirty, and besides, he didn't want to play in goal anyway.
