CARDIFF CITY boss Lennie Lawrence has moved a step nearer to a loan swoop for Manchester United's Luke Chadwick.
Lawrence is keen to add to his promotion-chasing Bluebirds squad in a final push for Division One, and has eyed up a number of new recruits.
With Huddersfield Town skipper Steve Jenkins in talks with Lawrence, Andy Melville and John Robinson are also on his wish-list along with Chadwick.
The 22-year-old winger has struggled to get into the first team at Old Trafford recently and Sir Alex Ferguson is keen for him to get regular action.
Ferguson has always been ready to loan out his youngsters and has apparently agreed in principal on sending Chadwick down to the Welsh capital, although nothing has been signed as yet.
"I have spoken to Sir Alex and he has agreed to a loan deal," Lawrence told the Welsh press.
"But there is still some work to be done and nothing, yet, is certain. I am, though, hopeful we can bring Luke Chadwick to Cardiff.
"He is a player with real potential. There are a lot of people standing in his way at Manchester United."
The deal will now rest on the player and his advisors agreeing on the terms involved in the switch.
