Cardiff City

Injury-hit skipper agrees new deal terms

13th July 2019, 11:50 by Simon Barlow

Cardiff captain Souleymane Bamba has agreed terms 'in principle' over a fresh deal after his agent held positive talks with the club.

The Ivory Coast defender has entered the final 12 months of his current deal at Cardiff City Stadium, but boss Neil Warnock wants him tied down.

The club are understood to be ready to reward the 34-year-old for his performances in the Premier League last season with a possible two-year deal in the offing.

Sky Sports News claims Bamba's representative Meissa N'Diaye has held positive talks with Bluebirds officials over the new agreement.

The defender has been recovering from a serious knee injury that saw him miss the crucial run-in last term.

Bamba underwent surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament against Wolves in March and will not travel with the squad for their pre-season tour to North America.

And reports claim he may not even return to full fitness until October.
