Cameron Jerome’s departure from Cardiff this summer now looks definate with Dave Jones looking to sell to the highest bidder to free funds for his planned squad rebuilding program. Jerome has been prolific in the Championship this season but went public with his premiership ambitions casting doubt on his dedication to Cardiff City.

Everton boss David Moyes was present as Cardiff played Sheff Utd recently, Moyes is a long-term admirer of Jason Koumas but wea apparently there to watch Jerome who he sees as a possible answer to Everton’s goal scoring problems. Sheffield United are another interested club following a £2m bid being rejected during the January transfer window, Neil Warnock could make an improved bid to bring Jerome to his newly promoted club. Norwich also were interested but signed Robert Earnshaw on transfer deadline day and will be playing Championship football next season.

Jones is happy to let Jerome go, and has lined up Kilmarnock striker and young player of the year Naismith, as a possible replacement. The £3.5m price tag still stands for Jerome though and Cardiff will be hoping for a bidding war with Man City and Charlton also interested. Hopefully the transfer will be completed sooner rather than later allowing Jones to pursue his targets with a full idea of the resources available to him.

  • A national rag also has us (pompey) in for him, provided we stay in the prem. Is he ready for the premirship yet do you think?

  • He will need to play every week for a while, he won’t adapt to 10minutes as a sub each week. Better than Karadas though!

  • You guys are joking if you think the Sale of Jerome’s cash will go to Davey Jones , Scam will swallow up that into his interest fee’s .

  • I disagree, Dave Jones has been given money when needed. Darren Purse cost money and Steven Thomson cost more than the £100k received for Alan Lee. Jones could be given more money now he’s proved he can use it sensibly…
