Window is now open I think Harris will bring a few in over the next month.
I think a lot will depend on who he manages to move on tbh.
Personally I’m not expecting much incoming, apart from a couple of loans maybe,
Marko Grujic on loan. No brainer.
As long as we can move Murphy out for £10mill we'll be fine.
I wonder if West Brom are in the market for a shit winger?
fool me once, shame on thee; fool me twice, shame on me
I wonder if we'll be seeing any players given a last chance in the lineup today.
Celta Vigo are reportedly interested in signing former Cardiff City midfielder Victor Camarasa this month.
The Spanish midfielder is currently on loan at Premier League club Crystal Palace, but his stay in south London has been disappointing.
He rose to prominence on these shores when he starred for the Bluebirds in their ultimately ill-fated Premier League campaign and earned what appeared to be a positive move to Selhurst Park.
He has, however, played only five minutes of top-flight football, in a 4-0 defeat by Tottenham, and it appears Roy Hodgson is unconvinced.
Seville-based news outlet Estadio Deportivo claim that Celta are primed to pounce, should Camarasa's season-long loan deal be cut short this month.
Camarasa's clause at Palace means if he plays more than 15 Premier League games for the Eagles then a mandatory buy option is triggered, which will cost around £13m.
Atlantico , meanwhile, corroborate the story, saying Camarasa will be one of Celta's top targets if Stanislav Lobotka leaves this month. Lobotka is said to be wanted by West Ham.
Reports in Spain claim Camarasa, 25, is eager to leave Selhurst Park, having grown frustrated with the lack of game-time.
Camarasa earned the adulation of fans in south Wales for his exploits here last season and, as such, many would love to see him back at Cardiff City Stadium.
Back in November, fans moved en masse to beg the club to bring him back in January after the player posted a cryptic tweet .
Naturally, there are barriers. It is thought Camarasa earns around £65,000 a week at Palace, which is more than three times what the Bluebirds would likely want to fork out, rendering any deal for the playmaker highly unlikely.
City manager Neil Harris has already spoken about his strategy in the January window, revealing the Bluebirds will not spend any money this month and will bring players in only on loan deals or as free agents.
I bet his strategy in the Jan window has changed after today's shambles.
West Ham have agreed a £4million move for Middlesbrough's Darren Randolph - all but ending their reported interest in Cardiff City's Neil Etheridge.
The Boro stopper, 32, is set to return to the London Stadium after a two-year stint on Teesside, according to the Guardian .
The Republic of Ireland international was keen for top-flight football after losing his first-team spot at the Riverside following an injury in November.
The Hammers identified Randolph after high-profile errors from back-up keeper Roberto, who has been deputising for the injured Lukasz Fabianski.
Cardiff man Etheridge was on West Ham's list of candidates to go for should a deal for Randolph not materialise. Football League World reported on Monday that the Premier League club were readying a £3.5million bid for the 29-year-old - a fee considerably less than what was touted for him in the summer.
The Philippines international is out of contract in South Wales next year and attracted interest from Aston Villa during the previous transfer window.
Neil Harris is on record when he arrived saying that he wanted to get his transfer business done in the first few days of this window.
I would not be terribly confident of the outcome if nothing does happen in the next week.
can't see much happening tbh TDA
We should be bringing in gavin whyte style players direct. Not side ways Jim.
Ex loan player Danny Drinkwater is joining Villa on loan..What a waste of his career moving to Chelsea. Set him up for life no doubt though.
Well if the £110k wages Chelsea want are true, Villa better stay up I guess
How Drinkwater earns coin like that is beyond me..He's on more than that as well I'm sure..
Who was that keeper we had a while that ended up at Chelsea as a backup keeper. Barely played a game but picked up a couple of Premier League medals & I think a Champions League one too.
Edit : Ross Turnbull.
Edit 2: Just looking, may not have actually got a premier league medal but definitely got Champions Leage & F.A. Cup ones.
Jammy bastard watched Kante do all the work and got rewarded with a 4 year deal 150k a week
Im sure if it was that easy to only pass the ball forward and score then every team would be doing it
Youve got to pass it sideways and backwards to open up space.
Pass and move, pass and move.
He will soon find out that unfortunately thats not how things work at Cardiff City FC.
