Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff City side have set their stall out regarding the Bluebirds’ centre-forward Kieffer Moore ahead of the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report by Wales Online, who claim that Cardiff will not accept an offer of anything less than £15m for the 28-year-old centre-forward this summer, in a desperate attempt to keep hold of the 15-time capped Wales international.
Having only moved from Wigan Athletic to Cardiff in what was a £1.98m deal last summer, Moore has already proven during his short time at the Cardiff City Stadium that he can play a huge role in Mick McCarthy’s side putting together a push for promotion next term.
In the season just past, the £6k-per-week striker highly impressed over his 42 Championship appearances for the Bluebirds, scoring a whopping 20 goals and registering one assist, as well as taking an average of 2.5 shots and making 0.5 key passes per game, culminating in a remarkable average SofaScore match rating of 7.28 – ranking him as the club’s best performer in the second tier.
As a result of these impressive displays, it would hardly be surprising if a number of the Championship heavyweights, or even a couple of Premier League sides, were tempted into making an offer for the former Rotherham United forward this summer.
However, after Cardiff confirmed that they will accept nothing less than a £15m bid for the 28-year-old this summer, this is highly likely to put a number of clubs off of a move for the hitman, which, in turn, provides Cardiff’s promotion ambitions ahead of next season with a rather substantial boost.
As such, with Moore looking extremely likely to still be playing his football in the blue of Cardiff next term, things very much seem to be on the up for the Welsh side, something that will undoubtedly leave fans of the club buzzing.
