According to journalist Andy Giddings, Cardiff City are set to sign Rotherham’s Will Vaulks with the the transfer fee now agreed between the two clubs as well as the midfielders wages.

Reportedly, the initial transfer fee is around £2.1 million upfront and could rise to as high as £3.5 million, making it much higher than what had first been mentioned, with Vaulks’ old club Falkirk receiving some of this fee through their sell on clause.

The 25-year-old played over 100 games for Falkirk, scoring ten goals for the Scottish outfit before making the move to the New York Stadium in 2016 where he has gone on to play over 100 times for The Millers, as well as making three international appearances for Wales.

He was one of the stand out players for Rotherham last season despite their relegation to League One, with seven goals and assists in 41 appearances in the Championship.

The Bluebirds are set to make Vaulks their first summer signing after last seasons relegation, with Neil Warnock hoping to challenge for promotion to the Premier League once again in the 2019/20 campaign.

It has also been reported that Sheffield Wednesday were interested in the Welshman but Cardiff are set to win the race for his services, with an announcement expected after his medical next week.
