Neil Warnock, the manager of Cardiff City, has been weighing up his options and may consider a move for David Davis, Birmingham midfielder when the transfer window opens this month.
The midfielder would be entering the final six months of his contract with Birmingham very soon and Cardiff would not mind making a move for him.
However, it seems Cardiff are not the only ones interested in the 25 year old midfielder. Nottingham Forest has also showed their interest in the player who scored three goals in his 23 Championship appearance this season.
For Nottingham, their discussions with Birmingham over the player seems to be at an impasse at the moment and they are duly tracking the situation.
At Birmingham, Davis is a key player and it is likely he would not be let off so easily by the team. He has also been able to make a good impression on Gianfranco Zola since the new manager took over from Gary Rowett.
With that, Davis has been restored to central midfield by Zola, who has also privately given his backing for the long term future of the 25 year old midfielder at the club, to be sorted out this month. Read more »
Neil Warnock penned a managerial contract with the English League Championship, Cardiff City on October 5 of the ongoing year and in less than a week of being appointed he had already added 4 new players to the club.
Junior Hoilett, Sol Bamba, MarouaneChamakh and Kieran Richardson are all of the players that Cardiff City signed within a week after having lured in Neil Warnock to the club but even though there has been a significant amount of players being signed and changes being done since the arrival of Warnock, Cardiff City are being tipped as one of the clubs that will be finishing at the bottom spots of the English League Championship.
Out of the 7 opening matches of the English League Championship of this current season, Cardiff City sustained 5 defeats, 1 draw and 1 victory. This is the start of the season that Cardiff experienced under the tutelage of their former manager Paul Trollope and it’s because of this underwhelming kick to their campaign that Cardiff City are still being tipped to finish in the bottom relegation zone and why they had to make a recent managerial change.

Swansea City are still in search for a capable replacement for Ashley Williams since allowing the transfer of the Wales international to Everton.
The summer window is set to close on Wednesday, yet the spot is yet to be filled. Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin is willing to add a centre back, with prospects likely to be from the Serie A. After the loss to new entrants Hull City, the need to fill the position would be more imminent.
Udinese defender Thomas Heurtaux has been linked to be the replacement but his fractured jaw could have affected the transfer process. Back up goalkeeper, Kristoffer Nordfeldt has signed a new four year deal with the club.
In the other division, Cardiff City are trying to force out Federico Macheda, Kagisho Dikgacoi and Adam Le Fondre before the window closes. The players have been told they are free to leave the club by the management of the Bluebirds.
Cardiff are willing to add a wing-back after the departure of Fabio this summer. The club was been linked to Red Devils Tyler Blackett who is a centre back, but can play as a left back. There was also Leicester City’s Richie De Laet on their radar. However, they lost out on both as De Laet joined Aston Villa and Blackett moved to Reading. Coach Paul Trollope discussed it, saying: “With Fabio gone, I’ll admit looking for a full back or wing back, with a bit of versatility to cover positions. Fabs was ideal because he could play right and left, so we will be looking.”
