Cardiff hoping for Arter stay

21st January 2019, 13:41 by Jack Ogalbe

Cardiff could face a battle to keep Harry Arter with parent club Bournemouth reportedly receiving interest about a permanent transfer.

The 29-year-old joined the Bluebirds on a season-long loan on August 9 last year and has played a regular role in their battle against the drop.

A groin injury meant he missed Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Newcastle, fuelling rumours he could be about to leave Cardiff and return to the south coast before moving on.

Bournemouth have a clause which allows them to recall Arter and it is understood they are pondering the possibility of exercising that option.

Both Watford and Aston Villa are thought to have contacted the Cherries regarding a permanent deal for the Republic of Ireland international.

The Hornets are currently unsure regarding Abdoulaye Doucoure's future, with Paris Saint-Germain keen, while Championship Villa want him to add extra thrust to their midfield as they plot their promotion push.

Cardiff may look to make their loan permanent but there are doubts over the funds available to Neil Warnock, having completed the club record signing of Emiliano Sala from Nantes at the weekend.
