Ex-Premier League left-back Kieran Richardson is training with Cardiff City, according to BBC Sport.
Richardson, who was released by Aston Villa after a woeful season with them in the last campaign, is set to meet with new Bluebirds manager Neil Warnock after Wednesday’s training session to make a decision on whether he signs or not.
Speaking in a press-conference, Warnock said: “I’ve had Kieran down this week. But it is a matter of chatting to him and seeing what the situation is.
“I would like to take him on board. We’ll probably make a decision today. We’ll have a full session with him today and I said I’d have a chat with him after training.”
The ex-Plymouth Argyle and Leeds manager took over just a week ago, but has already acted fast to add some big names to his squad from the free agent market, including Sol Bamba, Junior Hoilett and Marouane Chamakh.
Richardson now looks set to become the fourth, and would have to fend off competition from Declan John and former team-mate Joe Bennett to become the 67-year old’s first choice in his favoured position.
The 31-year old is highly experienced, including over 250 Premier League appearances and 149 at Sunderland, where he netted 15 times and got 12 assists.
He is also an England international, with eight appearances for the Three Lions.
Cardiff fans, what do you think? Would Richardson be a good addition to the squad, or did his performances last season prove that he’s not as good as he once was.
