Cardiff keen to make new signings

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has hinted he will make a belated bid to bring in fresh blood to the club.

The Bluebirds could not do that in the January transfer window with the outcome of their legal battle with Langston then to be decided.

But on Wednesday a High Court judge ruled the club did not have to immediately repay 24m in loans.

Jones said: "We'll continue to keep looking for players and if I find somebody, I'll go to the chairman."

Only loan signings would be available at this stage of the season and Jones said the outcome of the court case will allow the club to move forward.

We'll keep on knocking on people's doors and asking. There were a lot of players available in January and we weren't able to bring them in

"Hopefully the outcome of the court case will make life a little bit easier now," he said.

"But it is going to be difficult to bring in players because most of those who were on offer have gone and have been tied up so it will either be someone who's coming back from injury or that sort of scenario.

"But we will carry on and do our normal business and look forward. It's never a lost cause.

"We'll keep on knocking on people's doors and asking. There were a lot of players available in January and we weren't able to bring them in.


"Most of them have gone and now it's about going back to clubs and asking whether players who didn't go would be allowed to go now.

"But we are now into the stage of the season where people are looking to help themselves rather than help each other.

"In the long term the court-case outcome will help us.

"It means maybe we can start looking forward rather than wondering what's going to happen."

The Bluebirds face Bristol City at Ninian Park tomorrow hoping to boost their hopes of reaching the play-offs.
