Richards set for Cardiff with Malone joining Fulham



Fulham are set to complete the signing of left-back Scott Malone from Cardiff City, with Jazz Richards moving in the opposite direction.

Former Swansea defender Richards, 25, is set to return to Wales after agreeing personal terms with the Bluebirds.

He was part of Wales’ squad for the recent European Championship and has made 22 league appearances for Fulham since his move from Swansea a year ago.

Richards impressed during a spell on loan at Craven Cottage the season before last but struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular last term.

Malone, also 25, is returning to London, having had a two-and-a-half-year spell at Millwall before joining Cardiff in January last year.
