Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock publically declared his intention to lead the Bluebirds to a promotion charge next season, and fans of the south Wales side will revel in the former QPR manager’s battle cry.
Warnock’s words came in the wake of the signing of Bristol City midfielder Lee Tomlin, who leaves the Robins after just a single season as a permanent member of Lee Johnson’s squad.
The playmaker made 38 league appearances for the club last season registering six goals and a further 5 assists, and represents a real coup for Warnock’s side.
28-year-old Tomlin is a fiery character who will not only add creativity to the Cardiff side, but will also provide an aura of added bite and desire to the squad, and could prove to be the injection Warnock needed to boost his side ahead of another season of Championship football.
Tomlin has consistently scored and provided throughout his career, including spells with Peterborough United and Middlesbrough.
The player will come to Cardiff with the hope of leading the Bluebirds to a place in the top six, and his spark could be the catalyst that kicks the club into gear.
Fellow new signing Danny Ward will be delighted that Tomlin has joined him at the Cardiff City Stadium, and will hope he can forge a majestic partnership in Wales with his new colleague.
Warnock is making the right steps to improve his squad, and although a promotion push may seem a bit far fetched at this point, Cardiff are certainly moving in the right direction.
