Russell Slade has met with owner Vincent Tan to discuss transfer targets and the Scotland international is one of Slade’s top targets.

The Bluebirds boss is keen to add to some width to his squad and is due to complete an overhaul of the playing staff after a disappointing season in the Championship.

Tan wants Cardiff to challenge for a top-six finish next season and Slade has given him a list of what players he wants to bring to the Cardiff City Stadium.

Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy is also believed to be on that list of targets.

Russell joined Derby in a £750,000 deal two years ago from Dundee United and made 24 appearances for the Rams last season.

It is unclear how much it would cost Cardiff to sign the winger, or if Derby want to sell, but Paul Clement has replaced Steve McClaren at the iPro Stadium and has yet to assess his squad before deciding on any incoming bids.

The 25-year-old, who scored six goals and made eight assists during the 2014/15 season, can play on either flank or down the midfield, which is said to appeal to Slade.

The Scotland international is currently on duty with the Tartan Army ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

What do you think Cardiff fans? Do you think Derby will sell the winger? Let us know below!
