Andreas Cornelius - who cost Cardiff City £7.5million in the summer - is set to rejoin FC Copenhagen, according to Sky Sports

The unhappy striker has not settled since his move in the summer, and is now on course to rejoin the team he left for the Premier League.

After only featuring in 11 games since arriving he has yet to find the back of the net, and has begun to feel the wrath of the fans and the chairman, Vincent Tan.

Vincent Tan openly criticised the signing of Cornelius, and its believed this contributed to the dismissal of Malky Mackay.

The 20-year-old signed a contract worth £45,000-a-week, a substantial increase on his previous £6,000-a-week contract at the Danish side he came from.

FC Copenhagen have confirmed rumours by way of sending out a Tweet which read: "The club is close to sign a deal with @CardiffCityFC striker Andreas Cornelius. More to come in the following days."

The striker initially reacted to criticism in December saying he was: "Someone who wants to prove himself. I want to show the supporters what I am capable of."

However, it now appears as if he is set to leave the Premier League.
