Warnock ready to play the waiting game
Cardiff coach Neil Warnock says he is expecting the club's transfer dealings to go right to the wire this month.
The Bluebirds are on the lookout for extra bodies as they try to stay in the top flight this season.
Warnock has already missed out on right-back Nathaniel Clyne, while French midfielder Adrien Tameze is also not on his way after a deal fell through.
Cardiff are currently 17th in the Premier League and Warnock is looking for a striker, midfielder and defender.
Discussing his plans, he told Wales Online: "If I'm honest it could go right down to the wire again. Clubs don't want some of these players coming out on loan until they've attempted to sell first. And we don't want to buy some of them, to be frank.
"It might take until towards the end of the window to get in the targets we are after. But whilst I understand the frustration, the fans just need to keep supporting us like they have been.
"With their incredible backing, which is as good as anything I've seen in football, there's no reason why we can't get another 18 points from our remaining matches - even with the players we've already got here."
