Cardiff City have smashed their transfer record to land FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius.

The Bluebirds will splash out £8.5m for the 20-year-old, who was top scorer in the Danish Superliga last season with FC Copenhagen.

Michael Chopra was the club’s previous record signing, when they paid £4m to Sunderland in 2010.

A Cardiff spokesman said: “We have reached an agreement with FC Copenhagen for the services of Andreas Cornelius.

“He will join for an undisclosed fee on completion of his medical but it will be a club transfer record.”
