AFC Bournemouth are ready to submit a concrete bid for Cardiff City winger, Craig Noone, in January, a source close to the player has confirmed to Football League World.
The winger has been subject to interest from other Premier League sides, but Bournemouth will step up their chase for Noone with a formal bid in January.
Noone has been one of Cardiff’s most influential players since his arrival from Brighton and Hove Albion in 2012, and has become a stalwart in the Welsh side’s team.
Bournemouth have been extremely injury stricken this season after losing Christian Atsu and Max Gradel to long term injuries, and Noone has the quality to step in to fill the gaps of the two injured players.
Cardiff have had several key players linked away from South Wales over the past few weeks, and they will need to keep hold of their star men, if they are to make a serious push for promotion to the Premier League this season.
The Bluebirds currently sit in sixth position in the Sky Bet Championship, yet have only won three out of their last ten league fixtures.
Cardiff fans… Should you keep Noone at the club? How important is he in the clubs promotion push? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
