Cardiff City FC has moved swiftly to dispel rumours linking us with a move for Dutch keeper Dorus De Vries.

In a statement on the official site, the club said:

We can officially confirm this is not the case and no approach has been made to the player or his agent.

It was speculated that Cardiff were battling local rivals Swansea City for the highly rated stopper after his departure from SPL side Dunfermline Athletic.

Cardiff were known to have missed out on their top target, and were thought to have switched their attention to De Vries although Peter Ridsdale denied having even heard of the player !

It’s the latest in a number of players denied to be targets by the club. We need another keeper fast…..
