According to Wales Online, a number of Sky Bet Championship clubs are lining up a deal for Cardiff City’s Peter Whittingham, who is out of contract at the end of the current season.
Neil Warnock admitted he wants Whittingham to stay at the Cardiff City Stadium beyond this season, and confirmed he had offered the 32-year old a new deal with the Bluebirds.
Cardiff’s latest offer to the midfielder includes a wage deduction, and Warnock admits that the talented midfielder may be able to get a better deal elsewhere in the Championship, even though he is entering the twilight of his career.
Giving an update on the 32-year old’s future, Warnock said: “We’ve had a good chat Peter & I, we’ve laid the cards out.
“He has to see what happens, what develops for him as well. He might have clubs who can offer a more lucrative contract or a chance to play more regularly.”
Whittingham has been with Cardiff for ten years, and has made over 400 appearances in the Welsh capital, since his arrival in 2007.
The 32-year old has also played a major role in helping Cardiff to survival in the Championship this season, making 36 appearances and scoring seven goals.
With his future unclear, Whittingham could make his last appearance for the Bluebirds on Sunday, when Warnock’s side face promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town.
