Cardiff City striker Robert Earnshaw has admitted he is will have to consider a move away from his boyhood club over the next few weeks and states that he needs to play. Earnie returned to City last season on a free transfer, but after starting the first few games he was dropped and barely featured again save for a goalscoring FA Cup outing and a few late subs appearances.
It would have been immensely frustrating for Earnshaw, but he maintained his professionalism and was clearly trying very hard to impress when he did feature. Unfortunately, he just didnt fit into our style and was unable to displace Kenny Miller from the side - despite the Scottish International's wobbling form.
One of the higher earners at the club, there was speculation about Earnshaw's future - especially since he appears not to be a big part of Mackay's plans. He remains a proven goalscorer at this level, and keeps himself very fit so has plenty left to offer.
Speaking to WalesOnline, Earnshaw said:
"There`s obviously been a lot of talk about me moving on and I made no secret about the fact I need to play."
"I don`t know what is going to happen over the next few weeks. I really don`t. There`s a percentage chance I won`t be a Cardiff player next season, to be honest."
"But I`m not looking for that right now. I`m looking to play, I`m looking to score goals and I`m looking to be a Cardiff City player."
With Cardiff City looking to finalise the playing squad for next season, it would be preferable to all to have Earnshaw's future sorted asap so that we can recruit a replacement if necessary and prepare fully for the upcoming campaign. While Mackay is still working on brining up to three new faces in, his job would be immensely helped by being able to ship out some of the unwanted players with Anthony Gerrard, Dekel Keinan and Robert Earnshaw high on that list.
