Cardiff Target Cunningham

Cardiff Target Cunningham

Greg Cunningham has been targeted by Cardiff, according to the BBC.

Cardiff, who could lose Joe Bennett to Fulham, see Preston captain Cunningham, filling the void during Tom Clarke's injury absence, as an ideal left back replacement.

The BBC said: 'the left-back could be a replacement for Joe Bennett, who is weighing up an offer from Fulham. Fulham have met the release clause in Bennett's contract, with the player torn between staying at Cardiff and heading for Craven Cottage.'

We could say it doesn't matter to Preston what Bennett does, but all being well, as there could indeed be a knock-on impact to North End, the former Aston Villa defender will decide to stay with the current Championship leaders.

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock, quoted in the BBC report, confirmed Fulham interest in his Bennett and talks with other players but he wouldn't reveal if Cunningham was one of those the Bluebirds had approached.

He said: 'There is a clause in his contract ... and if they trigger that clause there's not a lot I can do.'

Adding: 'There's a few the media have not mentioned that I've been talking to. You'll just have to wait and see.'

Clearly Preston boss Alex Neil has faith in Cunningham, 27, or he wouldn't have handed the Republic of Ireland international the captain's armband on a temporary basis.

We'll find out soon enough if his own desire to remain at Deepdale will be tested?
