Cardiff City are set to sign Sevilla defender Juan Cala.

Cala was due to be out of contract at Sevilla at the end of the season and he rejected the offer of an extension.

The Primera Liga side have announced that a deal has been reached to cancel the 24-year-old's contract after a Premier League club showed an interest.

Newcastle United had been linked with a move for the centre-half, but reports claim Cala will officially join Cardiff in the coming days.
