Cardiff manager Neil Warnock wants to sign Chelsea and Wales teenager Ethan Ampadu on loan in January.
The Bluebirds travel to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday, and Warnock says he will speak to Chelsea officials about the prospect of signing Ampadu on loan in the next transfer window.
Midfielder Ampadu, who celebrates his 18th birthday today, shone for Wales against the Republic of Ireland and Denmark during the international break.
"I will be speaking to somebody at Chelsea about one or two things," Warnock said. "I think they should loan him (Ampadu) to us and I could help him as well.
"He doesn't look out of place. What I like about him is that he is so confident."
