Premier League strugglers Cardiff City will swap Nigeria forward Peter Odemwingie for Stoke City's Trinidad and Tobago target man Kenwyne Jones. BBC Sport reports the deal will go ahead when Jones, 29, completes a medical in the Welsh capital. Both he and Odemwingie, 32, are out of favour at their current clubs under new management. Jones has played second fiddle at the Potters to Peter Crouch since Mark Hughes succeeded Tony Pulis. Odemwingie, a Bluebirds summer signing for Malky Mackay, is now surplus to requirements as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer swooped for Jo Inge Berget from former club Molde this week. Stoke will take over the remainder of the two-year deal Odemwingie signed when he joined Cardiff. The length of Jones's contract at the Bluebirds is not known at this stage. He refused to play for the Potters against Liverpool a fortnight ago and was dropped from the squad for last weekend's defeat at Crystal Palace. Cardiff are also hoping to make the loan signing of Manchester United misfit Wilfried Zaha. The 21-year-old England winger has struggled to get top flight football under David Moyes after being overshadowed by teenage sensation Adnan Januzaj at Old Trafford. Solskjaer had hoped to complete the Zaha swoop before playing Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup, but the player has not yet had a medical at the Bluebirds. Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson's last Red Devils signing for an initial £10 million from Crystal Palace before retiring.
