Championship side Cardiff City are set to sign Venezuela international Rolf Feltscher, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The 27 year-old defender is expected to choose a move to Wales over a move to LA Galaxy. Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has been watching him for a while and looks finally able to strike a deal.

Feltscher has been a free agent since leaving Spanish side Getafe in the summer. He was on trail with Birmingham City and was set to join them but a deal never went through after Harry Redknapp was sacked.

Feltsher was born in Switzerland and represented them at U19 and U21 level but switched his allegiance to Venezuela in 2011. He has made sixteen caps for the South American side.

The 5ft 11inc defender started his career with Swiss giants Grasshopper and made his debut at the age of just 16. He signed his first professional contract in 2007 and spent three seasons in Switzerland before joining Italian side Parma in 2010. He found games hard to come by in Parma and had loans spells at Padova and Grosseto.

He was allowed to leave Parma in 2013 to go back to Switzerland with FC Lausanne-Sport. He spent one season there before moving to German outfit MSV Duisburg. He impressed with Duisburg and was rewarded with a move to Getafe in the summer of 2016, but only made 9 appearances for them and was loaned out to Real Zaragoza last season before being released.

Feltscher has played in Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Italy and looks set to join the Championship with Cardiff City.
