Cardiff City is loading up in hopes of staying in England's top division for next season.

The current Premier League cellar-dwellers have reportedly inked a trio of players, including a pair of castaways from Manchester United.

BBC is reporting Cardiff has reached deals to acquire Fabio, Wilfried Zaha and Kenwyne Jones.

Zaha will reportedly join the team on loan for the rest of the season. United acquired him in the middle of the 2012-13 season from Crystal Palace. The 21-year-old has made just two Premier League appearances for United this season, being largely overshadowed by young phenom Adnan Januzaj.

Fabio, meanwhile, is believed to be joining Cardiff on a permanent deal. The 23-year-old fullback has made just one Premier League appearance for United this season after spending all of 2012-13 at Queens Park Rangers on loan. He has made 22 career appearances for United but has failed to become the type of everyday player his twin brother, Rafael, has at Old Trafford.

Jones, meanwhile, is reportedly set to head to Wales in a sign-and-trade striker swap in exchange for Cardiff striker Peter Odemwingie. The 29-year-old Jones has no goals in seven appearances for Stoke City this season.

The moves come less than a month into the managerial tenure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Norwegian former United striker, who took over the Cardiff sidelines on Jan. 2.
