'No bids' for any Cardiff players

13 January 2009 03:06
Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale says he has received no bids for any of the club's players. Midfielder Joe Ledley and defender Roger Johnson have been the subject of much transfer speculation. But Ridsdale told BBC Wales: "Clearly we wish to keep the squad together. We intend to unless an offer comes in that we can't refuse. "If an offer did come in that was accepted, we would only do that if we thought it would strengthen the club." He added: "That would mean we would re-invest those funds in players that (manager) Dave (Jones) would identify." Cardiff have so far brought in Scottish winger Chris Burke on a free transfer from Rangers. But they missed out on Aston Villa loanee Wayne Routledge who opted for a move to Queens Park Rangers. And their hopes of re-capturing striker Michael Chopra seem to have faded. But Ridsdale said: "We always react to players who become available if they are on Dave'starget list as and when we can. "But what we are not going to do - and I reiterate - is just go out and spend money for the sake of it. "We will only spend it for the right players." Meanwhile, Arsenal have sold out their 4,000 allocation for the FA Cup fourth round clash at Ninian Park on Sunday, 25 January.
