Newly promoted Cardiff have already raided Spurs with the unexpected signing of Steven Caulker last week but could the Welsh outfit be back in an attempt to land unsettled Tom Huddlestone? Before the Caulker deal was done, City manager Malky Mackay confirmed that the club were busy and looking to bring in fresh talent ahead of the new campaign.
“We’ve been linked to a few players,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Talksport. “We’re looking to bring people in across every department. We’ll work to the last day.
“You’re trying to convince players to come to a club that’s just been promoted. You need to keep your standard high and look for the best players you can.”
Huddlestone was said the be the subject of interest from Sunderland last month but the press claimed that the deal fell through as the two clubs couldn’t agree on a fee. If that is the case, then the Cardiff rumour could make sense with Hudd leaving for a side who Spurs have recently done business with.
Fulham are also thought to be looming and in a crowded midfield, Tom is looking increasingly like the odd man out.
