Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has confirmed midfielder Solomon Taiwo is set to join Colchester United on loan.
Taiwo has yet to make an impact at Cardiff since signing for the Championship side from Dagenham & Redbridge back in August.
He has started just one game for the Bluebirds and appeared as a substitute in Tuesday night's FA Cup third-round tie at Bristol City.
The 24-year-old is now heading out on loan to Colchester, with Jones keen for Taiwo to be playing regular first-team football.
"Sol is going out on loan to Colchester," said Jones after the 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate.
"He needs to play matches. Sol did well when he came on and that will do him no harm.
"If we don't get players in, he will have to stay, but I don't want him to stay and just sit him on the bench."
