Rotherham United and Fleetwood Town are both interested in signing Cardiff City striker Mark Harris on loan, a report from a print edition of The Sun (01/08, p59) has claimed.
A graduate of Cardiff’s academy, Harris featured 17 times for the Bluebirds in all competitions last season, scoring three goals.
The 22-year-old has also previously spent time out on loan with the likes of Newport, Port Vale and Wrexham earlier in his senior career.
Now it seems as though the striker could be about to depart the Welsh capital on a temporary basis again this summer.
According to this latest update, both Rotherham and Fleetwood are battling to sign Harris on loan this summer, with both set to go head to head in League One next season, after the Millers’ relegation from the Championship at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
What was the score the last time Cardiff City played in these 24 stadiums?
Harris only signed a new contract with Cardiff earlier this summer, which secured his future with the Bluebirds until the summer of 2023.
I do think this could be a decent move all-round.
For Harris, it gives him an opportunity to develop even further, with his future at Cardiff for the season after secured following his new contract.
As for either Rotherham or Fleetwood, they would be getting a striker who has shown promise in the Championship, and so could certainly make an impact in League One for one of those clubs.
Cardiff meanwhile, could be getting a much improved player when Harris returns next summer if he does now go out on loan, and with Kieffer Moore, James Collins, Lee Tomlin and Isaac Vassell on the books, they should be able to cope with Harris’ absence upfront.
