Blues officials have confirmed the move is "95 percent done" with just the final stages of paper work to be completed.

It means the young Dane will go into the Bluebirds squad for Saturday's game against Scunthorpe.

"This does not mean Kasper has no future here, he just needs to get some games," said City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Schmeichel had been due to join Coventry but that deal collapsed earlier this week amid the midlands outfit's current financial problems.

The 20-year-old started the campaign as Eriksson's first choice, appearing in the opening seven games of their impressive start to the Premier League campaign.

However, Schmeichel, son of Manchester United legend Peter, lost his place to Joe Hart for the home win over Newcastle earlier this month and has been frozen out ever since.
