‘One less problem at the club’, ‘Can’t really complain too much’ – Many Cardiff fans react to Lee Tomlin update

Some surprise news came out of the Cardiff City Stadium this morning as it was announced that Lee Tomlin had departed the club with his contract being terminated.

The 32-year-old still had nearly a year to run on his deal, which was extended in January 2020 after strong performances under Neil Harris’ management, but after struggling with injuries for well over a year it was decided that Tomlin and the Bluebirds should part ways.

The attacking midfielder signed for Cardiff from Bristol City in the summer of 2017, having previously played for the likes of Middlesbrough and Peterborough United.

In what year were Cardiff City formed?

Tomlin struggled in his first two seasons with the club, eventually heading out on loan in both of them but he finally hit his stride in the 2019-20 campaign under Harris, scoring nine times and notching 10 assists.

But he picked up a groin injury early on last season that’s he’s been unable to really recover from, and after suffering from setbacks this year the two parties have decided to go their separate ways.

It’s a frustration for Cardiff fans who have seen the club lacking in depth in the attacking midfield area where Tomlin plays his best football, and they’ve been reacting to news of his departure on social media.
