Cardiff City top-scorer Kenwyne Jones is set to leave the club to go on loan to high-flying Championship side Bournemouth for the remainder of the season after the Bluebirds confirmed they have accepted an offer.

The 30-year-old has hit 13 goals so far this campaign for Russell Slade’s side and played the full 90 minutes in the Bluebirds last outing, a 2-0 home win over Birmingham last weekend.

The Trinidad & Tobago international joined the Bluebirds from Stoke in January 2014 in a deal which saw Peter Odemwingie move in the opposite direction. In total he has made 47 appearances for the Bluebirds and scored 14 goals in the process.

Slade has found himself presiding over severe cost-cutting at Cardiff and Jones would be the latest high-profile player to leave following Matthew Connolly’s move out on loan to Watford last week.

The deadline for emergency loans is at 5pm on Thursday and any deal would be subject to international clearance.

Cardiff City confirmed they had accepted a loan offer for the striker on their website.

They said: "Cardiff City Football Club has accepted a loan offer for Kenwyne Jones from AFC Bournemouth.

"Kenwyne will link up with the Cherries immediately, subject to international clearance.

"The emergency loan spell will run until May 2 2015 inclusive, though will be extended until 25th May (inclusive), should Bournemouth feature in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final that day.

"We wish Kenwyne the very best of luck during his time away."
