Cardiff City haven’t got off to the start they would have hoped for in their first season back in the Championship under Neil Warnock.
The Bluebirds currently sit 14th in the league table, and have recently lost summer signing Marlon Pack through injury, which leaves Cardiff light on options in midfield.
Neil Warnock revealed in a recent interview (quotes sourced from BBC Sport), that the club have drawn up a list of 15 potential targets that they can turn to from the free-agent market.
“We have looked – we had a list yesterday of probably 15 players.
“When you get players who are out of contract and they are good players, they want two-year contracts on money we are not prepared to pay.
“I don’t want to commit the club to something I don’t think is right.”
We look at THREE free-agent midfielders who Cardiff should be looking at signing in the coming weeks.
Ledley has been a free agent since he left Derby in the summer, and he could be the ideal option to bring in for Neil Warnock’s side.
He knows the club well, having previously made 256 appearances for the Bluebirds across a six-year spell.
Ledley is a tough-tackling midfielder, and would offer the ideal protection to a Cardiff defence which has looked shaky at times early on in this year’s campaign.
Morrison’s lengthy spell with West Brom came to an end over the summer of 2019, and he’ll be keen to find himself a new club at the earliest of opportunities.
He spent 12 seasons with the Baggies, which included a number of years playing in the Premier League.
His experience could be useful to the Cardiff squad, who will be hoping that they can make a swift return back into the top-flight this season.
Bjarnason left Aston Villa which came as a surprise to some, as he could have been playing in the Premier League for Dean Smith’s side this season.
The Icelandic international made 17 appearances for Villa in their promotion-winning season, but agreed to mutually terminate his contract in August.
His winning-mentality with Villa could come in useful to Neil Warnock’s side this season, who need to find some consistency in their results as soon as possible.
