Bluebirds chief: No Johnson deal

22 June 2009 01:10
The Midlands outfit have already seen a £5million offer rejected due to the terms of payment, however Cardiff may well accept a new bid of the same amount if more favourable terms are on the table. Birmingham have already signed defender Scott Dann while Giovanny Espinoza also looks set to be on his way to St Andrew's. Now the Blues are rumoured to be putting together another bid for Johnson in the coming days. But Cardiff chairman Ridsdale insists that for the time being at least, the 26-year-old is still in the Welsh capital, and told the South Wales Echo: "Nothing has been agreed. We said no to their offer and Roger Johnson remains a Cardiff City player." Meanwhile, Cardiff have yet to receive any firm offers for star midfielder and captain Joe Ledley, while on-loan striker Michael Chopra is expected to sign the relevant papers next week and complete his move from Sunderland.
