Porter Fails To Show For Cardiff City Medical

Porter Fails To Show For Cardiff City Medical

Cardiff City have already agreed a deal to sign Motherwell's imposing striker Chris Porter and were widely tipped to wrap up the signing today or tomorrow. However, Porter has not showed up for his scheduled medical in South Wales and has asked for time to consider his move.


Porter is out of contract in the summer, and has interested a number of clubs including this weekend's opponents Nottingham Forest. The Bluebirds had hoped to secure his signiture by nipping in during the transfer window and were so keen to land their man - Peter Ridsdale sanctioned a £350k deal for the frontman.


However, other clubs have contacted the player's agent and 25 year old Porter has decided to see if any other offers come in before Monday's 5pm transfer deadline.

1 striker and 1 midfielder away from a very good chance at promotion. Just hope key players stay fit

yer very true like dj said he hopes to bring in 3 faces to add strength in depth. keeping ledley is also essential to see if we can really push for promotion. if not he can then leave in the summer but maybe for a lesser fee than 8million

.. never heard of him before this present fuss .. if he's not keen to come to us then he wouldn't fit into what we're trying to build .. so, let's keep looking ..

understandable he might want to wait until Monday rather than grab first offer. I'd have thought the McCormack factor would have swung it for him, rosco seems to be enjoying himself...
