Bristol Rovers have ruled out a move for out-of-favour Cardiff City striker Omar Bogle as the Pirates seek reinforcements to get their playoff push back on track.
Reported by BristolLive, the League One side are looking at other targets if they are to bring another striker to The Memorial Stadium over the next few weeks.
The 27-year-old Bogle has been told that he is free to leave The Cardiff City Stadium this January by Neil Harris, having scored one goal in 12 appearances across all competitions this season.
The former Wigan Athletic striker is strong and suits a direct style of play, a forward that wouldn’t suit the style of play that new Rovers manager Ben Garner is looking to employ at his new club since being appointed last month.

Rovers could be weighing up their options up front with talisman Johnson Clarke-Harris having his contract talks stalling with the club’s hierarchy, as well as his good form in the blue and white quarters potentially attracting clubs from the Championship and League One.
Bogle won’t suit the style of play that Garner is trying to implement at Bristol Rovers, nor are they in desperate need for a striker with Clarke-Harris still the main man up front for the Pirates.
The 27-year-old Bogle could have suited Rovers had former manager Graham Coughlan still been in charge, but he will instead have to wait for another side to enquire about his services and hope that they are a side that will relish a target man of his ilk.
