Cardiff City winger target Wayne Routledge has left the club and will not be signing permanently for the Bluebirds. Instead the former Palace man returned to Aston Villa before sealing a move to Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers.

Although Cardiff City had agreed a £300k fee with Villa, QPR maintained an interest and despite Routledge enjoying his time in South Wales – he was swayed by the vastly superior wages on offer – and the return to London.

Cardiff City have now been weakened by the departure of Chopra and Routledge within a week. However, Peter Whittingham and Ross McCormack are both fit and available to slot straight into tomorrow’s starting line-up against Reading.

The loss of Routledge is a disappointment, but he did drift in and out of games with alarming regularity. Whilst he always seemed capable of making things happen, he was not entirely dedicated to the cause – this is the second time he has bailed out to chase the big money – he will be hoping the move to QPR goes better than his previous spell in London – a nighmare stint at Tottenham Hotspur.

  • If you were offered, lets say double your salary and better conditions, are you saying that you would not take it?. I don’t think so. Not sure if you would give any notice either!!!!

  • Moneybags QPR??? Are you talking about the same QPR that has made a profit out of transfers so far this season? Or the QPR that failed to sign Morrison or Hudson on a free because we didnt offer them as much money as Coventry and Charlton?
