Cardiff City To Swoop For Wigan Midfielder?
Cardiff City are in the market for a couple more players to bolster the threadbare squad that has made an encouraging start to the new season with one of those players likely to be a central midfielder with persistent doubts over our balance when Ledley, McPhail and Rae are in the team.
One player who would fit the bill is former Crystal Palace man Ben Watson who is currently out of favour at Wigan Athletic. The Latics paid £2m for his services but is reportedly unsettled and could be heading for a loan move away from DW-land.
The Daily Mail believes Cardiff City will be his destination, though aknowledges we face stiff competition from the likes of QPR, Middlesborough and Ipswich Town.
Watson would certainly fit the mould of the type of player we need, and would also be a quality acquisition. At 24, he remains an exciting prospect with real aspirations of becoming a seasoned Premiership pro.
