Cardiff boss Mick McCarthy hands Wolves boost in transfer pursuit



Cardiff City boss Mick McCarthy has admitted the club would accept a big offer for Wolves target Kieffer Moore.

Football Insider has reported that the Premier League club are lining up a £7 million bid for the Cardiff striker, who scored 20 times last term and is off the mark already in 2021/22.

Wolves are said to be in the market for a new centre-forward before the window closes at the end of August, with the Bluebirds understood to be open to cashing in on the 29-year-old.

McCarthy was pressed on Moore’s future after his side’s 3-1 victory over Millwall on the weekend.

Asked whether he was worried about losing the Wales international, he told Wales Online: “No.

“I don’t worry about things I can’t do anything about. If somebody comes in with a huge sum of money, I’m sure the club would consider it.

“I hope that’s not the case. But I’m not going to sit here and worry about it.

“Not at all.”

Moore only arrived in the Welsh capital last summer, joining from Wigan after their relegation for a fee in the region of £2.5 million, and still has nearly two years left on his current deal.

Have Cardiff City won or lost more against each of these 25 English teams?

The Verdict

While McCarthy seems to be suggesting he’s not worried about losing Moore, he certainly hasn’t ruled out the club cashing in on their towering forward.

That’s definitely a boost for Wolves as it seems a deal is possible, it’s just about finding the right price.

The arrival of James Collins in the summer has given the Bluebirds boss more options up top and that may mean the club chiefs are more open to letting the Wales international leave, particularly if a hefty bid comes in for him.

It’ll be interesting to see whether the £7 million touted as a potential opening bid from Wolves is enough to convince Cardiff to sell.

They may feel he’s worth a bit more but as they’re believed to be in need of raising funds, the Premier League club may be able to get him for cheaper than usual.
