Cardiff City eyeing January swoop for Celtic striker



Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City are keen on a move for Celtic striker Anthony Stokes in January, according to the Scottish Daily Record.


Stokes is a forgotten man at Parkhead and has only played in two games for Celtic this season, despite scoring two goals for them, just two seasons ago.

He has not been part of manager Ronny Deila’s plans with the manager preferring to play just the one striker up front, which is a role entrusted to prolific goalscorer Leigh Griffiths.

But it looks like Cardiff could offer Stokes a way out of his Parkhead hell, with a reported £750,000 bid to be tabled in January.

Stokes has not played a league game since August and Cardiff manager Russell Slade is keen to add to his firepower, due to their struggle for goals this season.

Their defence has been excellent this season but striker Eoin Doyle has struggled to impress meaning he has been loaned out, with Federico Macheda plagued with injury.

They have recently added Charlton striker Tony Watt in a loan deal and they now seem keen on bolstering their options with Celtic striker Stokes.

Celtic were not keen on selling him last January but now with Stokes is seemingly completely out of Deila’s plans they are ready to sanction a move.
