Cardiff City to sign Arsenal right back on a season loan

Cardiff City are closing in on signing Arsenal youngster and defender Jordi Osei-Tutu on a season-long loan deal, WalesOnline understands.

The Bluebirds have made that right-back spot an area of priority following the acquisition of Kiefer Moore and it looks like they have found their man in Osei-tutu.
WalesOnline has learned that Osei-Tutu has travelled from London and underwent a medical with Cardiff on Tuesday morning.

The 21-year-old Gunners acedemy product spent last season on loan at German second-tier club VFL Bochum, where he impressed as a first choice right back.
The full-back, who can also play further up the pitch on the wing, is thought to be an attacking-minded player, having scored five goals for the German club last season.

He certainly fits the bill in terms of what Cardiff manager Neil Harris is looking for, a right back who can affect the game at the business end of the pitch as Dion Sanderson done during his loan spell last term.

It is understood that Sanderson is still part of the conversation for the Bluebirds, who could add another right back, as well as Orsei-Tutu, in the coming weeks.
