Cardiff City Intent On New Signing
Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale has given the clearest indication yet that he seeks to re-enforce the Bluebirds squad this season, a situation vastly improved after Langston were denied a summary judgement.
Doubts arose that the Bluebirds management were allowing this season to 'fizzle out' and allowing the semi-final achievement to deflect from a disappointing league campaign.
However, the players and manager have all made the right noises and providing Ridsdale can back up his pledges - Cardiff fans should be appeased and look forward to a promising future.
Ridsdale told the SW Echo:
'Now, at last, I can concentrate on strengthening the squad.'
'We have been working hard all along to bring in the right players - over the last couple of days alone we have been knocked back for six players - but the court case meant finances were difficult.'
A play-off place looks increasingly remote so a priority remains a pacy striker, preferably not cup-tied and eligible to play against Barnsley - a nice carrot to dangle for prospective targets. So far we have been linked with Andy Carroll of Newcastle United, Wigan's Henri Camara, Derby's Robert Earnshaw and Sunderland's Michael Chopra.
