Rumour mill: Cardiff City linked with fresh move for Jefferson Montero

Reports have emerged today suggesting Cardiff City are stepping up their interest in Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero – but WalesOnline understands any proposed deal is still a long way off.

Sky Sports claim Montero is in the process of obtaining a visa that will allow him to travel to the UK for a medical with the Bluebirds.

Sources inside the club, however, have denied any move is imminent.

The 23-year-old, who has made a flying start to the season for Mexican outfit America y Morelia, has previously been linked with Premier League rivals Swansea City, Everton and Hull City.

Earlier this month Montero revealed to the Mexican press he was happy at his current club but would not rule out a move to the Premier League this season.  

Cardiff are in the market for a wide man after failing to land Blackpool star Tom Ince earlier this summer.

The Welsh club, who want at least one more player before the transfer window closes on Monday
, are monitoring West Brom winger Peter Odemwingie,
with rivals Swansea also interested.

Montero, who scored a remarkable hat-trick for his current club
just a few weeks ago (see video below), is valued around £5m.
