Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman has revealed that the club could be set to announce two more signings in the coming days.
The Bluebirds have already completed one signing since the end of the season, with striker James Collins joining on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract with Championship rivals Luton Town.
Now however, it seems as though the club from the Welsh capital have already secured two more players who will follow Collins in making the move to Cardiff in the coming days.
Providing an update on the club’s transfer business, Dalman told the A.C.E Podcast Nation: “I’m surprised to hear it’s only one. I thought we’d signed three players but what do I know?
“He [McCarthy] has his shopping list and we’re supporting him in that. I’m surprised we’ve only mentioned one player, I thought we’d done more but then again, what do I know?
“Evidently, we’re very close. I would imagine they’ve just not been announced. But I signed them off a few days ago so I presume they’re in the process of getting done.”
Indeed, it also seems as though Cardiff’s transfer business might not be done even after they have signed those two players, with Dalman going on to add: “We will have a lower wage bill this year because a number of players who have gone out of contract have left the club.
“That will bring the wages down a little bit – not considerably. But we have to go and invest. We have to bring in three or four players this season and we have to find the money somewhere.”
Which Cardiff player has been carded the most in each of the last 15 seasons?
Cardiff finished last season eighth in the Championship table, nine points adrift of the play-off places.
This does seem to be an exciting revelation made by Dalman for those of a Cardiff persuasion.
They have already made one promising signing with the arrival of Collins, and the fact that they have seemingly got two more done will also be of interest to followers of the club.
Indeed, with Dalman touching on the fact that Cardiff have seen a number of players leave the club at the end of the season, it does seem as though they are going to need to recruit several more this summer.
The fact they are moving quickly is therefore encouraging, since it shows they are willing to address that issue, and it gives those new signings plenty of time to adapt to their new surroundings before the start of the new campaign.
