Cardiff City have made an initial enquiry to re-sign Victor Camarasa following his successful loan spell during the club’s Premier League campaign last term, according to journalist Colin Millar.
Camarasa is currently spending the season on loan at Crystal Palace after completing another temporary switch away from parent club Real Betis over the summer, but he has been limited to just five minutes of league action so far this term.
It is thought that Camarasa now wants to leave Selhurst Park after failing to establish himself in Roy Hodgson’s plans, and Cardiff are now reportedly showing an interest in the attacking midfielder alongside Norwich City and Celta Vigo.

The 25-year-old scored five goals and registered four assists during an impressive season for Cardiff in the top-flight last term, and it now appears that the Bluebirds are keen to add Camarasa to their ranks to help boost their potential play-off bid.
Neil Harris’ side are currently sitting just four points off the Championship play-off places in 12th place, and the South Wales side will be hoping Camarasa will consider a return to the Welsh capital in order to help propel them into the top six.

This seems an audacious move for Cardiff to compete with Norwich and Celta Vigo for Camarasa’s signature given their Championship status, but they will be hoping the midfielder’s previous spell at the club will help them seal the signing.
Cardiff ideally need to streamline their squad ahead of the second half of the season given the number of players Harris has at his disposal, but he will not be able to turn down the possibility of brining a player of Camarasa’s quality to the club.
There can be no doubt that the Spaniard would be a top player at Championship level, but it would be interesting to see where he fits in the Cardiff side given the vast quantity of midfielders already playing for the Welsh side.
