Cardiff City are in talks to sign Manchester United's Alan Smith on loan.
It's understood United have accepted the Bluebirds offer but are waiting for the 26 year old to agree terms.
Cardiff top the Championship but are missing first choice striker Steve Thompson through injury.
Smith has struggled to break into United's first-team since breaking an ankle in February.
