Boost for Blackburn and Plymouth as striker target leaves Cardiff



Championship outfit Cardiff City have confirmed on their official website that striker Rickie Lambert has left the club after his contract was cancelled.

The 35-year-old moved to the South Wales club only last year after a short stint at Premier League side West Brom, but things just didn’t work out for the former England international at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Lambert made his debut for the Bluebirds in their 3-2 defeat to Norwich City back in September, and went on to earn only a further 18 appearances for Neil Warnock’s side, in which time he bagged just four goals.

And, unsurprisingly, the 35-year-old was sparingly used in the latter stages of the campaign as Cardiff pulled themselves away from danger and towards mid table mediocrity, and he has now officially left the club after seeing his contract terminated.

It leaves Lambert searching for a new club little over three years since his last England cap, and just over two since he played for Premier League giants Liverpool, where he spent a season back in 2014/15.

And this news will give the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Plymouth Argyle, both of whom have been linked with the forward, a boost in their quest to land him this summer, as the duo prepare for their respective League One campaigns.

But for Cardiff, attentions will remain firmly on trying to climb the Championship table under Warnock next term, seeking to improve upon their 12th place finish last time out.
