Premier League rivals Norwich had been weighing up a move for the 29-year-old Frenchman.

Now Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now ready to hijack any potential deal and bring the player to South Wales.

Ciani, who made a big impression at former club Bordeaux, made a big-money move to the Serie A club last summer.

However, the 6ft 3in centre-back has failed to make much of an impression under head coach Edoardo Reja.

Ciani has made 17 appearances in Serie A this season, scoring one league goal against AC Milan in October.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
