Arter reveals Bluebirds deal condition

28th November 2018, 12:12 by Craig Smithson

Harry Arter has warned Cardiff that they must avoid relegation from the Premier League if they want to sign him on a permanent deal.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international midfielder is currently on a season-long loan from top-flight rivals Bournemouth and has impressed in his 10 appearances so far this term.

Arter is enjoying playing regular football in south Wales and, when quizzed about his long-term future, he revealed that a full-time switch could be on the cards next summer.

However, that would depend on the two clubs agreeing a fee and also on the condition that Neil Warnock's men avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

Cardiff are currently 19th in the table, but just one point from the final position of safety after 13 matches, and Arter said: "Playing Premier League football is all I want to do.

"That's something I feel I've worked very hard for in my career and not something I want to give up very easily.

"I'm 29 next month and I know if I step out of the Premier League it might be hard to get back there.

"I've said to my family already that the dream season would be Cardiff to stay up and the manager to want to carry on next year and then hopefully I can sign.

"I've loved every minute of being here. Every training session I've loved and most importantly the games. Playing at home has had a real meaning to it this year - the fans have been brilliant throughout."
