Cardiff City

Warnock misses out on targets

6th January 2019, 06:02 by Michael Holland

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock says he missed out on some of his transfer targets while waiting for Nathanial Clyne to join from Liverpool.

Warnock has been left fuming after discovering on television that Clyne, who was a top target had joined Premier League rivals Bournemouth on Friday.

Warnock claims he was "promised" the right-back on loan by the Reds, and has accused the Merseyside giants of lacking class over the handling of the situation.

Not only that, Warnock claims he missed out on three other potential loan players as he waited for the Clyne deal to be completed.

"I probably should have been illegally tapping him up or something like that, shouldn't I?," he said.

"But I did everything right and Bournemouth came in. I suppose Bournemouth, paying 19million for (Dominic) Solanke, it might just have whetted their appetite a bit.

"I've lost out on three players because of that by waiting. I lost out on a couple of full-backs and a striker because I couldn't use the loan up. I'm doubly disappointed really.

"Listen, we don't get any favours, we're not going to get any favours, whether it's on the pitch or off it. We are always up against it."
