Everton striker Niasse joins Cardiff City on loan
Cardiff City have announced they have signed Everton forward Oumar Niasse on loan until the end of the season subject to international clearance.
“I’m really pleased to be at Cardiff City,” Niasse, told the Cardiff City website.
“Having heard about the manager [Neil Warnock] from other players and met him earlier today, I knew this was the right move for me.
“Other clubs were interested, but I was convinced that this was where I wanted to come.”

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock praised the player and stated that he was his kind of player
“He said he’s [Niasse] my type of player and that he would do well for us, the way that he plays,” said the Bluebirds boss.
“When I’m looking to improve the squad there’s not many players available on loan. I was going to take [Nathaniel] Clyne and then I couldn’t have done Niasse.
“I’m a massive believer in fate so it probably wasn’t to be, the Clyne thing, and now this opportunity’s come.
“He [Niasse] has got a chance, like Victor [Camarasa, Cardiff’s midfielder on loan from Real Betis], to put himself in the shop window.
“Even if we brought in Sala, it will be up to the lads with the shirt to keep it. I won’t change it just because I’ve paid money for somebody.”
