Fowler Rejects Cardiff City For Blackburn Rovers
Instead of adding another striker to the squad, Cardiff City have lost one as new Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince takes a gamble and offers Fowler a deal at Ewood Park.
Fowler's move represents a lack of respect for the club who stuck by him throughout his injury problems and to a manager and chairman who defended him at every opportunity.
This will be a relief to some Cardiff City fans with Fowler playing such a small part last year. His injury problems may not be behind him and he barely looked useful in appearances in the Championship last year.
The upshot is that we paid Fowler a great deal of money and got virtually nothing in return. He has stalled on signing the new contract, waiting for a better offer and now moves on having used Cardiff City for pre-season fitness.
Peter Ridsdale has confirmed a replacement will be found.
