Cardiff City have seven-figure bid rejected for Championship star



Bolton Wanderers have rejected a seven-figure bid from Cardiff City for striker Gary Madine, according to reports in the Bolton News

Cardiff City have dropped off the pace in recent times as they look to slip out of automatic promotion contention, with an injury to Kenneth Zohore stumping the progress of the Bluebirds.

It now looks as if Bolton Wanderers striker Gary Madine is the replacement wanted by Neil Warnock, after making a bid for the Trotters top-scorer.

However, they were supposedly knocked back in their efforts to sign the striker, as it’s suggested that Bolton Wanderers stated that the player is not for sale.

Chris Coleman’s Sunderland have also been linked with the striker over the past month, but it looks to be Cardiff City that are pulling off all the stops.

Indeed, Bolton are currently in the midst of a dreaded relegation fight as they look to secure a future in the Championship, which has seen Phil Parkinson make it a priority to keep his star men, with chairman Ken Anderson insisting he will not be forced to sell.

Phil Parkinson gave an update on the transfer situation of some his player’s:

“We’d be crazy to sell any of our key players at this stage, the chairman has said several times he intends to keep hold of everybody.”

But, so far, Wanderers are refusing to comment on the matter of the supposed Madine bid.

The verdict

Bolton Wanderers would be losing their key man, while Cardiff City could have found their finishing touch in the promotion race.

Gary Madine would definitely bring goals to the Cardiff City side, although if they do manage to make something of promotion then there’s questions being raised as to whether he’s good enough.

Bolton Wanderers would suffer a huge set-back, losing their top-scorer could condemn them to relegation.
