Cardiff City forward Kieffer Moore is not set to actively push for a move away from the club ahead of the transfer deadline amid emerging interest from the Premier League, according to Wales Online.
It has been reported that Wolves are interested in bringing the Wales international into their squad before the transfer window closes as they aim to get some competition for Raul Jimenez upfront.
Football Insider have reported that Wolves are now set to test Cardiff’s resolve to keep hold of the striker by coming in with an offer worth around £7 million for his services.
However, a report from Wales Online has suggested that Cardiff would not be keen to sell Moore for a valuation of £7 million. That comes with the Bluebirds set to hold out for an offer in excess of £10 million for the forward who reached the 20 goal mark in the Championship last term.
Mick McCarthy did concede to the media that Cardiff could decide to cash in on Moore before the transfer window shuts if they were to receive a big offer from Wolves.

An update from Wales Online though reveals that Moore is content with life at the Bluebirds having chosen to move to Cardiff ahead of other interested parties last summer.
It is believed that the Wales international would not actively push for a switch to Wolves at this stage as a result.
This is a massive boost for Cardiff and their hopes of keeping hold of Moore this summer with the forward seemingly happy to remain at the Cardiff City Stadium for the rest of the campaign.
Moore is going to be crucial to any ambition that the Bluebirds have to challenge strongly for promotion this season.
The forward is the real difference-maker for Cardiff in the final third and the one player in their squad that can grab the 15 to 20 goals you often need to secure a top-six finish.
Wolves might be set to test Cardiff’s resolve to keep hold of Moore and it would be much easier for the Bluebirds to resist that if they know the forward wants to actually remain with them.
Therefore, it seems that Cardiff will have a major upper hand in any negotiations and can say to Wolves that with the player not pushing for a move they will have to meet their full valuation to sign him.
