Cardiff City's Gerrard Close To Leicester Switch

Cardiff City's out-of-favour centre-half Anthony Gerrard appears on the verge of an exit with fellow promotion hopefuls Leicester City ready to take a chance on the former Walsall man.

The Foxes, along with Bristol City, had lodged a 200k bid around a week ago - but Malky Mackay was unwilling to accept a fee for Gerrard, who remains a solid Championship centre-half despite being surplus to requirements at CCS.

After an injury to Sean St Ledger, Leicester City appear to have increased their offer and though their 400k bid has not matches City's half a million valuation - the Bluebirds have accepted.

With Gerrard and Keinan unwanted but perfectly acceptable Championship cover, the decision to let Gerrard leave now is probably a good one. He is a big personality and has struggled to establish himself in the first team - often being overlooked by Mackay.

Personal terms are almost agreed between Gerrard and Leicester City with the deal potentially wrapped up very shortly - barring any late hiccups.
