Cardiff City interested in signing 2015 Nigeria U23 invitee ahead of transfer deadline
2015 Nigeria U23 invitee Uche Ikpeazu is being linked with a departure from Championship outfit Middlesbrough before the close of the January transfer window on Monday.
 
Football Insider says Cardiff City are interested in signing the Reading academy product this month but have to fend off competition for the Anglo-Nigerian-Ugandan attacker.

Ikpeazu has slipped down the pecking order of strikers at Boro following the temporary acquisitions of Brighton & Hove's Aaron Connelly and Arsenal's Folarin Balogun.

Signed from Wycombe Wanderers for a fee that could rise to one million pounds, Ikpeazu has gone from being an undisputed starter under former coach Neil Warnock to hardly featuring for Boro in recent weeks.

Since the start of November, the 26-year-old has logged only 46 minutes from a possible 1,080 minutes in the Championship.

Ikpeazu was named in the Dream Team VI's provisional squad for the 2015 U23 Africa Cup of Nations.

He counts Watford, Cambridge United and Heart of Midlothian among his previous clubs and took in loan spells at  Crewe Alexandra, Doncaster Rovers, Port Vale and Blackpool during his time at Vicarage Road.
