All Quiet On Cardiff City Transfer Front

All Quiet On Cardiff City Transfer Front

The transfer window slammed shut at 5pm last night and as expected was a boring and uneventful affair for Cardiff City fans. Our two most saleable assets both remain Cardiff City players despite constant speculation and it`s somewhat of a coup to continue until Christmas with Ross McCormack and Joe Ledley remaining as Bluebirds.

The lack of a move for Ledley is likely to mean he will put pen to paper on a new deal - this would guarantee us a fair price when he does move on.

No new players were brought in by Dave Jones, who doubtless would have ideally liked a winger and possibly another striker to call upon. However, with his hands tied and the likes of McCormack set to return from injury - he will not be too downhearted.

Riccy Scimeca turned down a move to Brentford, he has barely featured in years but is an experienced and influential member of the dressing room and is working towards coaching badges while with the Bluebirds. He knows he is unlikely to feature for the first team, especially given the recent capture of Solomon Taiwo but Riccy`s wage is based largely around appearances and he costs the club little by way of basic wage.

Other players such as Tony Capaldi and Miguel Comminges failed to find new clubs but would likely have been released by Cardiff City for small fees. However both full-backs must now concentrate on ousting Quinn, McNaughton, Kennedy and Matthews from those positions - a tough ask.

i suppose with ledley, rae, scimeca and taiwo - we'd have to get rid. Hopefully taiwo can add what we need in there, the rest have all had chances and no partnerships stand out
