Here are your Cardiff City headlines for Wednesday, 22 June.

Bale in the training ground as a conversation with the agent

Cardiff City president Mehmet Dalman is in talks with Gareth Bale’s agent over a move to the Bluebirds, although several clubs are understood to be interested in the player’s signing.

Bell was at the club’s Vale of Glamorgan training base on Wednesday morning, a facility he shares with the FAW. The player was doing some physio work with the medical staff of FAW. It is understood that manager Steve Morrison spoke with Bell for the first time this summer, while the player was at the facility. You can read more about him here.

And we understand that Dalman has been in contact with representatives for Bell in recent weeks to discuss plans to move to the player’s hometown club. While it must be emphasized that nothing has been agreed with anyone yet, Cardiff are certainly a club that is right in the mix.

Vincent Tan has been keeping a close eye on the proceedings and is really excited about the prospect of Meczyki playing the greatest footballer of all time for his club. Should Bale decide he wants to join the Bluebirds, it could have a real knock-on effect on the upside and reinvigorate Tan’s desire to help bring City back into the Premier League.

Hopefully, Bell will make his decision before going on vacation with his family in the coming days.
