Cardiff City Confirm Cooper Interest

Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale has admitted our strong interest in MLS striker Kenny Cooper as our search for a 'big target man' continues.


As things stand - we have had an offer, thought to be between 1m-2m accepted by the MLS league, who hold the player's registration. Scandinavian club Helsingborg are also interested but City appear to be leading the chase at the moment.


Kenny Cooper is 23 and 6'3' tall. He is a former Manchester United reserve and currently plays for FC Dallas.


Cooper is expected for talks in South Wales this week, and hopefully will be impressed by the new facilities, stadium and ambition. The search has gone on long enough and we could really benefit from having our striker train with the squad for as long as possible before the season starts.


One added bonus is that Cooper is currently mid-season in USA, and is already match fit. Unlike Fowler and Hasselbaink last season, he wouldn't require months to become 'match fit' and could play straight away depite missing the pre-season tour.

If we got Kenny Cooper it would more than make up for the loss of the tired, clapped-out, old has-been, once-were, lags, Fowler, Hasselbaink, and Bent, and when Boyd said he didn't want to come to us anyway, Ridsdale and Jones were right to forget him. It seems that Ridsdale has learned to keep quiet until signatures are on paper and we only learned about Cooper because the Americans revealed the situation. So all credit to our managemnt team. Let's hope that 1. Cooper actually turns up this week and 2. signs up .. because all this publicity has certainly alerted other clubs to the possibility ..

looks a good signing, but still plenty of work to be done
RoathBlue
wait for it.....wait for it......keep waiting, and then birmingham will snatch another
bluebird04
yeah here come birmingham probably. are their management team and scouts so *****ty they have to use ours? i know who i will be rooting to get relegated this year. cooper did great agianst the la galaxy yeasterday, it was on tv here in america

what cardiff should do is say, we are looking to buy mark kennedy(our own player) for 5m, then hopefuly and more than likely birmingham will not even notice who he plays for, they will just give 5m away
bluebird04
genius! Maybe they'd even include McSheffrey and Jerome - looks like they were so gutted about McCormack they went all out to steal Bent - lets hope we got the better option!

kenny cooper has told PR he wants to have talks with rosenberg before us.
bluebird04
I heard that, but it was the agent acting FOR rosenbourg so dont read too far into it.....
bluebirdshroom
im ging to be mad when he signs for rosenborg
attwooll9
cooper a good signing your having a laugh? His best scoring season in the MLS is 11 goals but as your linked with every striker because your desperate and the season just around the corner i suppose it is to be expected goodbye goodnight from a happy JACK

Looking highly unlikely again...FC Dallas denying they have accepted any bids when there are quotes from PR that they have. Its not the best tranfer period :-(
