Cardiff City are set to land Derby County midfielder Craig Bryson on loan, according to the Scottish Sun.
It is understood that the Derby midfielder has penned a deal that will be made permanent in January. Cardiff manager Neil Warnock is believed to be a big fan of the Scot, and has jumped at the chance to sign him. He has been on the fringes of the Derby side under Gary Rowett and has struggled to nail down a permanent place in the team.
Bryson, 30, started his career with Scottish side Clyde before moving to Kilmarnock in 2007. He spent 4 years with the Scottish Premier League side, making 118 appearances and scoring 12 goals, before moving to Derby in the Championship in 2011. He has been a key player for the Rams since then and has played over 200 games, scoring 37 times. He has also played for the Scottish national side 3 times.
However, he has fallen down the pecking order at Derby in recent times and is apparently keen on a move to Cardiff. The Bluebirds have had a great start to this season and have a 100% win record. They are many pundits dark horses for promotion. Neil Warnock has made some very useful acquisitions including Neil Etheridge from Walsall and Nathanial Mendez-Laing from Rochdale. One of the biggest successes for Cardiff is keeping hold of striker Kenneth Zohore, who has been linked with moves away to Brighton, Hull and Everton, but looks set to stay at the Welsh side. Cardiff fans will be hoping that Craig Bryson will add some experience to their already strong ranks as they aim for a promotion season this season. They are hopeful of completing a deal before the transfer deadline.[/tps_title]
