Cardiff City defender Bruno Manga has joined Dijon for £3m with Middlesbrough's Aden Flint replacing him.

The Bluebirds finalised a deal for Flint on Friday following a medical, in a deal worth about £4m plus add-ons.

Manga, 31, left the club's pre-season tour of North America after a deal with the French Ligue 1 side was agreed.

He made 160 appearances for the Bluebirds following a £5m move from Lorient in 2014.

The 30-year-old Flint moved to the Riverside for around £7m last June, making 39 Championship appearances, but Cardiff manager Neil Warnock was keen to move quickly with Manga departing.

The Gabon international had a year remaining on his current deal, but is thought to have made it clear he was keen on a return to France.

Cardiff are also expected to finalise a deal for Bordeaux's Younousse Sankhare.

Striker Kenneth Zohore has also left Cardiff's tour to undergo at medical with West Bromwich Albion ahead of an £8m transfer.
