Cardiff's Alexander set for exit ?

Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Alexander has rejected Cardiff City`s offer of a new contract and Cardiff manager Dave Jones has confirmed that he will not be offering an improved deal to Alexander.

The Scottish International is currently City`s longest serving player after moving to the Welsh capital in May 2001 for £200k. Since then Alexander has always been in and around the Cardiff first team, always bouncing back to regain the number 1 jersey from the likes of Martyn Margetson and Tony Warner, Alexander`s form has been most consistent and impressive in the previous 2 seasons where he has looked more confident and assured - attracting strong previous interest from Norwich City and Coventry City. Alexander and his agent have rejected the offer and the player may be on his way out of Ninian Park:

Cardiff manager Dave Jones said on the matter:

'Neil is quite within his rights to wait until the end of the season and see what happens, but it`s a gamble in my eyes.'

The 28 year old has made close to 200 appearances for Cardiff and has been a loyal and determined servant during City`s rise to the 2nd tier of English football, particularly impressing of late and is currently ranked as the 2nd best 'keeper in the Championship according to the latest Actim statistics behind Wolves' Matt Murray.
