Cardiff City captain Darren Purse could be heading for the exit door after being told he will not be offered a new contract at the club.


The former West Brom defender has spent a frustrating time on the sidelines after Roger Johnson formed solid partnerships with Glenn Loovens and recently Gabor Gyepes.


On his day, Purse is a strong defender with fantastic committment and leadership skills. However, Cardiff City fans have only seen glimpses of his best form over the last 3 seasons and he can be turned too easily by oppsition forwards.


Dave Jones now appears happy to allow Purse to leave Ninian Park, but as his contract expires in June – there will be no transfer fee.


Amongst the clubs thought to be interested in Purse are Leeds United, Leicester City and Charlton Athletic.

  • suppose he has experience on his side but age must be taking its toll now, he always was full blooded and the knocks add up.

  • He’s been an excellent club captain and inspirational in his example to and support of younger players – I remember the way in which he welcomed Aaron Ramsey onto the pitch for his first 1st team appearance .. we owe him a great debt of gratitude and I am sure all City fans will wish Darren well if/when he moves on – he [and his family] seemed always happy to be Bluebirds ..

  • yes i do wish darren purse well. he has served the club tremendously over the years but i do feel dave jones is right not to offer him a new deal,
