Wilfried Zaha, Fabio and Kenwyne Jones set to join Cardiff

Sources understand Wilfried Zaha and Kenwyne Jones are at St George's Park for medicals ahead of proposed moves to Cardiff City.

The duo look set to sign for the Welsh club along with Brazilian defender Fabio as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to clinch a hat-trick of signings on Sunday.
It is understood that England Under-21 winger Zaha will join Solskjaer's side on loan from Manchester United for the remainder of the season for a fee in the region of £1.5million.
The 21-year-old has been restricted to just four appearances for United this season, one of which came in the Community Shield win over Wigan.

A move to south Wales would allow the former Crystal Palace man some much needed regular first-team action.
With Theo Walcott ruled out of the World Cup later this year, Zaha will no doubt hope to catch the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson during his loan spell at Cardiff.
Brazilian full-back Fabio is also understood to have passed a medical ahead of a move from United to Cardiff for an undisclosed fee.

Meanwhile, Stoke striker Jones is set to join Cardiff in a swap deal that will see Nigeria international Peter Odemwingie move the other way.
Confirming the deal was imminent, Hughes said after his side's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea: "It should go through tomorrow and will be concluded then. We're pleased to get Peter in.
"He's a good Premiership player with experience at this level, a goal in him and a bit of pace - which we need to add to the squad. (I'm) pleased to add him."

Jones was fined and dropped earlier this month after sending a text message to Mark Hughes the night before Stoke's 5-3 home Premier League defeat to Liverpool on January 12 saying he was not available to play.
Speaking earlier to Sky Sports News upon arrival at St George's Park, Jones said: "Of course (I'm excited about the move).
"It's playing football so I'm really happy to go and try and help Cardiff City stay in the Premier League."
