Cardiff Interest In Saints Striker?
Cardiff City are keeping a close eye on the situation of Southampton striker Leon Best.
Best, 20, is a tall and powerful striker who also possesses good pace. He is out of contract at Southampton and has rejected their offer of a new deal. Despite being rated, Best has spent most of his time on loan and scored 10 goals in 15 appearances for Yeovil Town this season. Best started the play-off semi-final against Derby setting up a goal before hitting through his own net and missing his penalty in the shoot-out.
Cardiff City are searching for a striker after missing out on top transfer target Chris Killen. Best may be a realistic option given his availability on a free transfer.
However, if Cardiff do make an offer, they will face stiff competition for the player with Coventry City and Stoke also thought to be interested.
