    Sol Bamba set to extend Cardiff stay and sign new contract

    Cardiff have agreed terms in principle with captain Sol Bamba over a new contract, Sky Sports News understands.

    The 34-year-old Ivory Coast defender has entered the final 12 months of his current deal.

    But the Bluebirds have been keen to reward him for his performances in the Premier League last season and could tie him down for at least another two years.

    His representative Meissa N'Diaye has held positive talks with Cardiff officials while the player has been recovering from a serious knee injury.

    Bamba tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Wolves in March and missed the rest of the season after surgery.

    He will not travel with the squad for their pre-season tour to North America and may not return to full fitness until October.

    But manager Neil Warnock recently said: "He's doing so well it might not be that long, but I wouldn't expect him back too early."

    Absolute joke.

    Warnock is pulling Ken Choos pants down every chance he gets.

    Sounds like what people were saying when he signed the last contract with us. Since then it seems to me that we have had good value from him:shrug2:

    Ok fair enough it seems you don't rate him. I just happen to think he has been one of our better signings of the last few years

    I doubt he's going to cost us a fortune and if he plays his part in a successful season it will be worth it. Worth his weight in gold for the seemingly strong leadership he brings to the squad.

    He’s massively overrated imho

    Defence was much better when he got injured last season, always got a mistake in him, bollocks others for his own mistakes, and most of all he’s nearly 35, coming off a very serious injury, so why the fuck are we handing out 2 year deals to an injured player? It’s the sort of injury a younger player will do well to come back from and it’s not like Bamba is in demand, so why the rush to extend his contract?

    More naivety from Ken I Choo Choo choose you and no doubt Warnock at the root of it. Probably getting his palm greased somewhere along the way.

    Just like the 4.5 year deal for Bacuna. Turns out his agent works for the same company as Warnocks son.

    And whilst we are at it, why are Willy Mckays sons at City in the first place? :sherlock:

    Doubtfire has got everyone’s pants down.

    I agree with WLP the defence was slot more solid with manga and Morrison I like bamba but he thinks he's beckenbauer 80% of the time and done his cruciate it's a strange one imo because I can't imagine him being in demand next season when he's pushing 36

    Sounds to me like in reality it's a year extension in real terms. I would assume that the medical reports on his recovery are positive or I'm sure we wouldn't be offering the contract.

    I don't know anything about the criminal aspects of the deals. Sometimes though I feel we would be in better hands with you running the club.

    2 million over 2 years or somewhere around that figure personally I just don’t understand the logic he’s coming off a serious knee injury and don’t know how his body is going to react he might breakdown after a handful of games and we’re left with paying him for the next 2 years :shrug2: I like him don’t get me wrong but the club is not thinking if it’s best interests here imo
