Cardiff City are reportedly still interested in bringing in Wigan Athletic striker Kieffer Moore during the current transfer window despite recent reports to the contrary.
The BBC reported just under a week ago that the Bluebirds had dropped their interest in the big frontman after having an opening bid rejected by the Latics.
However, on Sunday night, The Mail Online reported that the South Wales outfit had not infact given up entirely on the 27-year-old, stating that Neil Harris and co were “still keen”.

It has been a tricky campaign for Moore since making the move to the DW from Barnsley during the summer transfer window, finding the back of the net just twice in 18 appearances.
It is has been proven, however, that he is capable of scoring plenty of goals having racked up 17 in 31 League One appearances for The Tykes last season.
Harris is understandably keen to strengthen his striking options with summer recruit Robert Glatzel and Danny Ward only managing five apiece so far this season.
The Bluebirds currently sit in 13th place in what has been a frustrating campaign so far, with Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Birmingham City leaving them six poins adrift of the play-off places.
I think Moore could be a very good signing for Cardiff.
Ultimately, any striker would struggle in Wigan’s current side. They have not replaced the creativity lost in the summer via Nick Powell and that has hit Moore hard.
In Harris’ physical and more direct side, with creators like Lee Tomlin and Junior Hoilett delivering crosses for him, the former Barnsley man could soon start to thrive.
