Former Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard looks set to join Cardiff City
CARDIFF City are poised to sign former Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard from West Ham United for a fee understood to be close to £2.5 million.
If the 25-year-old can agree personal terms with Cardiff, the deal should be concluded before the transfer window shuts today.
Maynard, pictured, joined the Hammers for about £1.6m from Bristol City in January 2012, but his first-team chances have been limited.
The Crewe product would be Cardiff's tenth summer signing after Brighton wing Craig Noone joined yesterday.

Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has already signed Craig Bellamy, Tommy Smith, Heidar Helguson, Matthew Connolly, Joe Lewis, Jordan Mutch, Kim Bo-Kyung and Etien Velikonja this summer.
Maynard started his career as a trainee at Crewe Alexandra, scoring 32 goals in 59 league appearances, before joining Bristol City in a £2.25m deal in July 2008.
The striker was equally prolific during his time at Ashton Gate, hitting 45 goals from the 124 league games, but the Robins were forced to sell Maynard before his contract ran down.
He scored in West Ham's 2-0 League Cup win over former club Crewe on Tuesday night, making his first appearance of the season.
