2 in, 1 out: The Cardiff City January transfer business that could happen



Cardiff City suffered a third defeat in five games last night, as AFC Bournemouth dispatched Steve Morison’s side 3-0 in the Sky Bet Championship. 

Morison’s side enter 2022 hovering just above the Championship relegation zone in 20th, albeit with a three-point lead over Peterborough United, who occupy the final relegation spot.

As we know, the January transfer window is just around the corner now and that offers Cardiff the chance to reshape the squad that Morison has at his disposal.

We’ve already seen Cardiff recall Max Watters from MK Dons heading into 2022, but what else might be done?

We take a look:

In: Rarmani Edmonds-Green 

Edmonds-Green is currently thriving on loan with Rotherham United from Huddersfield Town.

The centre-back, though, has a number of admirers heading into the January transfer window, according to Football Insider’s sources.

It’s not clear what the future holds for Edmonds-Green, with Huddersfield rating the 22-year-old and, understandably, happy with how his loan spell has been playing out.

However, with Cardiff, Preston North End and Barnsley lurking, it wouldn’t be completely out of the blue if a move materialised.

Given the links, he’s a player Cardiff might potentially target.

Did Cardiff City finish eighth in the Championship standings during the previous campaign earlier this year?

In: Cameron Humphreys-Grant 

The 23-year-old centre-back has impressed with Zulte Waregem in the Belgian Pro League this season, making 18 appearances.

The Daily Mail have previously claimed that Cardiff, along with Blackburn, Birmingham and Coventry hold an interest in Humphreys-Grant.

Another centre-back linked, then, and with Cardiff already conceding 42 goals in the Championship this season, it’s safe to assume it’s a position of priority for Morison.

Out: Kieffer Moore 

Let’s be clear, Moore isn’t a player that Cardiff are going to be actively looking to move on this winter. He’s got five goals to his name this season and was the man that scored 20 last year in the Championship.

Moore will help keep Cardiff up if they can retain him.

However, the fact remains that he’s the club’s most saleable asset and a player that could raise funds to strengthen across the board.

That was alluded to by Wales Online earlier in the month as they previewed the upcoming window.

Wolves have had previous interest in Moore and there would be no surprise if more preying eyes were on him in early 2022.
