Whittingham 'Not For Sale' - Ipswich Confirm

Cardiff City are standing firm on Malky Mackay's promise that no further players will depart our depleted squad, recently bolstered by the additions of Earnshaw, Cowie, Conway, Mason and Gunnarsson and with the promise of more to come.

There had been significant interest in cultured midfielder Whittingham who enjoyed a fabulous 2009/10 season and adapted extremely well to a new role, becoming a key member of the first team squad in 2010/11.

Leicester City and Nottingham Forest showed interest, but Ipswich Town had also attempted to continue their spending spress - hopeful of Whitts linking up with former team-mate Michael Chopra.

However, Paul Jewell has now ended his interest in the former Aston Villa midfielder and confirmed he had been warned off by the Bluebirds. Jewell was asked about the possibility of a move:

'We have asked about him but have been told he`s not for sale either. We know we need to strengthen and are doing everything we can.'

Whittingham looks set to bhe a key player again, able to operate on either flank on in an advanced central role. That area is weak for City at present but with the more defensive minded Gunnarsson joining the club - a central role for Whitts does seem a realistic proposition.
