Cardiff City have confirmed the signing of Denmark international striker Andreas Cornelius from FC Copenhagen.

The 20-year-old completed his medical on Monday and has signed a five-year contract with the Premier League newcomers.

Cornelius, who scored 18 goals in the Superliga last season, has won seven caps for his country and joins the Welsh outfit for an undisclosed fee.

He is looking forward to playing his part in Cardiff's first top-flight season since 1961-62.

"I've been given a great opportunity and this is a very exciting project that's taking place at Cardiff City," he told the club's official website.

"I'm very happy to be here and to be playing for this club in the Premier League."
