The winger, on loan from Manchester United, posted a picture on Instagram of him wearing Cardiff’s red strip with the caption: "First session done."

Earlier this month, Zaha -- who joined United from Crystal Palace in a 15 million pound deal last year -- agreed to join the Bluebirds, managed by former Old Trafford striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, until the end of the season.

It is expected that 21-year-old may make his Cardiff debut against Norwich on Feb. 1.

Earlier this month, Cardiff's Welsh rivals Swansea denied reports that they were planning to bring in Zaha on loan, while speculation that he could return to his former club Crystal Palace on a short-term basis also proved wide of the mark.

Speaking after the deal was agreed, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: "He has got the little bit of urgency in the last third, pace and power."
