Velikonja set for Sarajevo

Cardiff City striker Etien Velikonja is close to joining Vincent Tan's other club, Sarajevo, on a loan deal.

The 24-year-old has made just four appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds since joining from Maribor in 2012.

Cardiff's owner, Tan, completed a takeover of the Bosnian side in December, with Velikonja set to be the first player to move between the two clubs.

Sarajevo's director of sport, Abdullah Ibrakovic, told Dnenvi Avaz: "Cardiff's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave the green light for a loan, just like the player's agent.

"Now the ball is on the striker's side. If he does come, he will be a great replacement for our best striker Nikola Komazec who just left us."
