Bursaspor: Kenny Miller has been sold to Cardiff

Published Add your comment

Cardiff look close to finalising a deal for Kenny Miller to bolster their attacking options ahead of another push for promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Miller, who moved from Rangers to Turkish side Bursaspor in January, is believed to want a return to the UK.

Bursaspor had been in negotiations with Rangers about a deal to return Miller to Ibrox, but it’s understood that the Scottish giants offered just £375,000.

"The policy of Rangers is not good," Bursaspor director of transfers Erkan Kamat said. "I don't like it. It is a ridiculously low offer.

"As far as we are concerned, Kenny Miller has been sold to Cardiff City. He is going to be their player and he is not going to Rangers."


 

It’s understood that Cardiff have met the Turkish side’s valuation for the 31-year-old striker, believed to be in the realm of £900,000.

Cardiff have been looking for attacking options ahead of another campaign with the hopes of promotion to the Barclays Premier League. Last year’s leading scorer Jay Bothroyd left for newly promoted Queen's Park Rangers last week after his contract expired.

Cardiff are hopeful that a deal can be reached to take Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy on loan for another season, however Bellamy has said that any movement will be decided by City.

As apart of any deal for Bellamy, Cardiff would require City to pay a substantial portion of Bellamy’s £90,000-a-week wages and it’s understood that the powers at be at Eastlands are unwilling to do that.
