    ADEN FLINT is leaving Middlesbrough to join Championship rivals Cardiff City.

    The centre-half is due to undergo a medical with Cardiff within the next 24 hours, with Boro having agreed a deal for his departure.

    Cardiff are understood to be paying an initial fee of around £4m, but clauses within the deal means the price for the centre-half could rise to £6m.

    Flint joined Boro from Bristol City last summer for a price of around £6m, and signed a four-year deal on Teesside.

    He was a key member of Tony Pulis' first-choice defensive line-up last season, making 39 Championship starts as Boro narrowly missed out on a place in the play-offs.

    However, he will leave Teesside after just 12 months in the Boro ranks, with Jonathan Woodgate overhauling the squad he inherited from Pulis when he was appointed head coach earlier this summer.

    He scores a lot of goals off set pieces. That would attract him to Warnock no doubt.

    Bruno is a significantly better player though. I was very confident with him & Mozza starting the season & Bamba fighting to get in soon too.

    Can't we just throw Bruno a couple of cheese & wine nights to simulate the feeling of being in France? We could all wear berets & stripey black & white shirts to our home games too...

    Well I’m going to put my neck on the line and say that I think he’ll be a great addition to our squad.

    He scored a lot more than that for Bristol. He scored nearly 1 in 5 for Bristol, thats a hell of a return for a defender.

    It hasnt worked out for him at Boro for whatever reason but hes going to be playing for a manager here who puts a lot of emphasis on set pieces and that will play to Flints strengths.
