Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has reaffirmed his intentions to let winger Craig Noone leave the club this summer, reports the BBC.
The 29-year-old moved to the South Wales outfit back in 2012 following spells at Brighton and Plymouth Argyle, and has since been an integral member of the Bluebirds side, netting 19 goals and laying on 18 assists in 170 games for the club.
However, the Englishman wasn’t a regular under Warnock last term, finishing the campaign with 34 appearances in the Championship, of which only 17 were starts.
And with it seeming that he is falling down the pecking order at the Cardiff City Stadium, and with his contract up next summer, it appears that he could be on his way out of the club this summer, as manager Warnock has reaffirmed his desire to let the Bluebirds stalwart leave the club.
He said: ‘I think he needs a move and I think he’ll do well for the team he goes to, but I’m not in a rush.
‘He doesn’t cause me any problems, he’s a good lad.’
These comments are sure to intrigue Cardiff fans, who have seen Noone play a key role in the Bluebirds first team in the past, not least when he helped them win promotion to the Premier League back in 2013 with seven goals and eight assists in their title-winning campaign.
But it looks like his time in South Wales will be coming to an end this summer, but with his vast amount of experience at Championship level, as well as undoubted ability in the final third, it’s unlikely that the 29-year-old will find it difficult to secure a move.
