Cardiff City are hosting medicals for Reading defender Sean Morrison and Norwich winger Anthony Pilkington this morning, according to Sky Sports journalist Pete O’Rourke.

A fee was agreed with Norwich last night for 26-year-old Pilkington, believed to be just over £1 million, and he could make his debut this weekend against former club Huddersfield Town. The Republic of Ireland international made 62 appearances for the Canaries, scoring 15 goals including a winner against Manchester United back in 2012.

Morrison had been rumoured to be interesting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer all summer and although a deal between the two clubs hasn’t been announced, a deal has believed to have been agreed on yesterday. The 23-year-old was part of the squad that was relegated from the Premier League two seasons ago and will look to fill the void of Bluebirds departure Steven Caulker.

The two will be the club’s seventh and eighth signings of the summer as they look to bounce straight back to the Premier League.
