Cardiff City vs J F Hasselbaink: Stand-Off
Cardiff City look set for a problem with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ready to fight his corner having been effectively released by the club.
Hasselbaink originally had a 1 year extension clasue built into his contract, activated if he played a certain number of games. He did, but apparently this clause was 'verbally waived' between the two parties.
However, Cardiff City appear certain to release Hasselbaink and may be guilty of messing the player around after recently stating his future would only be decided depending on other signings.
Hasselbaink reported for pre-season fitness tests with the rest of the squad with some sources reporting he was turned away.
Either way, Hasselbaink looks certain to leave, with lawyers and the PFA now deciding what compensation package he may be entitled to.
