Cardiff City transfer news: Bluebirds dealt blow as fresh Leeds Utd twist emerges and Liverpool stance on starlet revealed

Here are your Cardiff City transfer headlines for Tuesday, June 8.

Bluebirds dealt blow in pursuit of Liverpool’s Harry Wilson

Cardiff City’s hopes of seeing Harry Wilson return on loan next season have been dented following reports Liverpool are hoping to use him as a makeweight to bring in Leeds United star Raphinha.

The Wales international is currently away with the national team ahead of their Euro 2020 opener against Switzerland this weekend, but his future beyond the tournament remains shrouded in mystery.

Cardiff have expressed an interest in taking him back on loan next term, however chairman Mehmet Dalman appeared resigned to the fact that Liverpool will look to sell, rather than loan, the player in the upcoming window.

And that, according to The Mirror, via Sports Mole, could help Liverpool land Raphinha.

It is claimed the Anfield outfit are willing to see the Welshman, 24, go the other way in a swap deal which would see the Brazilian head to Merseyside.

Leeds were thought to have held an interest in the player last summer, with director of football Victor Orta said to be a big fan of the Wales star.

Although a move to Elland Road was kiboshed last summer, it certainly appears to be back on the cards now.

Liverpool stance on Neco Williams revealed

Jurgen Klopp will want to keep hold of Neco Williams this summer despite reported interest from Cardiff City and Swansea City among others, according to Reds correspondent Paul Gorst.

The Bluebirds were linked with a loan move for the versatile wing back, who can operate on either flank and in a Mick McCarthy-favoured wing-back role.

However, it seems as though Klopp will want to keep the 20-year-old Wales international at Anfield this summer and considers him a more than capable deputy should Trent Alexander-Arnold hit more injury strife next term.

“Both [Swansea and Cardiff] have good relationships with Liverpool, I believe,” Gorst told Gist Vile. “Particularly Cardiff, who have taken both Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic in recent years.

“I think Jurgen Klopp will be keen to retain Williams, however.

“He is a solid deputy to Alexander-Arnold and allowing him to leave on loan only leaves the Reds’ squad short of a secondary right-back.

“Given the upheaval we’ve seen inside Liverpool’s defensive ranks this past year or so, letting Williams go out on loan only adds to that. I am confident with a fully fit centre-back department to choose from next season we will see more of Williams in a Liverpool first team.”

Williams gives verdict on Cardiff City exit

Wales midfielder Jonny Williams admits he expected his stay with Cardiff City to be extended before he was released earlier this month.

The Wales international joined the Bluebirds on a short-term deal on the final day of the January transfer window but featured just nine times under Mick McCarthy before departing the club on the opening day of June.

And the 27-year-old admits he was left shocked when he discovered his time with Cardiff was coming to an end this summer.

“Originally I thought I was staying so it came as a surprise to me,” he said.

“At the same time, football doesn’t surprise me.

“I’ve been in the game for 10 years and experienced a lot of ups and downs, so I can take it on the chin and move on.

“I’m a free agent and I’ve been in this position before – keep fighting and trying to enjoy my football, wherever that might be.”

Update emerges on Barnsley star

Barnsley midfield ace Alex Mowatt appears poised to sign a new deal up at Oakwell, according to LancsLive.

Mowatt was extremely impressive last season and with his contract running out with the Tykes, it was set to spark an almighty scramble between Championship clubs for his signature.

Last October it was claimed that Cardiff City were among a number of clubs, including Middlesbrough, QPR and Blackburn Rovers, monitoring the player’s situation.

However, LancsLive now claim Mowatt is on the verge of committing his future to Barnsley, with an announcement set to be made in a matter of days.
