Cardiff midfielder set to leave

Cardiff midfielder set to leave

The Northern Ireland midfielder ha been on loan with Stoke City this season, but has failed to figure in their first team after an impressive loan spell by Aston Villa`s Lee Hendrie and recruitment of Czech Republic star Patrik Berger to the Brittania Stadium.

Jeff Whitley was one of Dave Jones` first signings for Cardiff City, the tenacious midfielder out of contract having been released by Sunderland and played a big part in Cardiff`s solid first season under Jones.
He made 34 appearances for Cardiff City, scoring one goal during a 2-1 defeat by Watford last season.

After a well-documented spat with Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez regarding Whitley and then City teammate Phil Mulryne breaking a curfew, Whitley lost his International place and consequently missed the revolution under Sanchez including a fine 1-0 win over England.

Whitley has now played his final game for Cardiff City and even when we were desperately searching for a central midfielder, Whitley never got a look in.

Manager Dave Jones confirmed Whitley`s imminent departure:
'We are working with Jeff to find him another club'.

Is Malvin Kamara any good? we've signed him on loan until the end of the season - doesn't seem to have figured much for you. We're told he's a pacey, skillful winger - is there any truth in that?
