Cardiff have completed their sixth January signing, bringing in Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on loan for the rest of the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had already boosted his squad with the addition of Fabio, Kenwyne Jones, Magnus Wolff Eikrem, Mats Moller Daehli and Jo Inge Berget since succeeding Malky Mackay as Bluebirds boss.

Zaha, 21, is the most high profile of his acquisitions, although it has taken longer to conclude the deal than had been expected.

Solskjaer said: "That signing should be done by now. His name is on the paperwork. He is a Cardiff player.

"He has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will give us that extra change of tempo in the final third, where we really need it.

"He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic."
