Cardiff favourite Peter Whittingham could be heading towards the Cardiff City Stadium exit gates in the summer with Neil Warnock confirming contract talks have stalled.

The Cardiff legend – the use of ‘legend’ is probably more fitting with Whittingham than Ronny Rosenthal, isn’t it? – has found himself marginalised since Warnock took charge with fresh talks failing to reach an agreement.

Warnock is increasingly mindful of the Financial Fair Play regulations and isn’t sure if an agreement on a ‘compromised contract’ with the former Aston Villa man will be possible.

He was quoted by Wales Online as saying.

‘We had discussions and couldn’t quite reach an agreement. We had a FFP meeting and we should hear about that next week. We’ve looked at players out of contract, those on loan and we should know more about the figures in the next 10 days. We’ve spoken to Peter about a compromised contract and until I know the figures I don’t know what we can offer.’

If an agreement isn’t reached in the coming weeks his 10 year spell with Cardiff looks set to end.

Whittingham’s often found himself behind the likes of preferred options Joe Ralls and Aron Gunnarsson since Warnock’s arrival in October.
