Pericard gets Bluebirds chance

02 August 2009 02:53
Pericard was not offered a new deal by Stoke at the end of last season and has been training with Cardiff this week.

The 26-year-old featured as a substitute in the Bluebirds' friendly defeat by Valencia on Saturday and earned a penalty in the second half.

Jones is happy to take a look at the ex-Juventus and Portsmouth man, and is not ruling out a deal with the Championship side.

"Vincent's done a pre-season at Stoke, but then he didn't play the games," said Jones.

"They released him, but Tony Pulis rang us up to say to take a look and we will do that.

"He's been out a long time with a ruptured Achilles and there's no harm in looking at someone on a free.

"We're helping him and he might help us if we decide he's right for us. If he wins a penalty every week I'll sign him!"
