Cardiff City have pulled out of a move for Nice midfielder Adrien Tameze.

Cardiff are keen on adding to their midfield options and were confident of a deal for the 24-year-old.

The former France youth international has made 50 appearances for the Ligue 1 side having joined from Valenciennes in July 2017.

Manager Neil Warnock wants to add a striker and a full-back over the next month and they have registered interest in Nantes forward Emiliano Sala.

The Bluebirds missed out on top target Nathaniel Clyne with boss Warnock blasting Clyne's parent club Liverpool, accusing them of "lacking class," after the right back switched to Bournemouth.
