Cardiff City are looking to snap up Lee Camp following his release by Rotherham United according to a report from HITC Sport.
Camp had started the season as the Rotherham number one, but an injury meant he was ruled out for several months. While he was out, the Millers made moves to replace him and signed Richard O’Donnell from Bristol City, someone who has fit in well at the club since his move. And with O’Donnell now looking very comfortable in between the sticks at the New York Stadium, Rotherham had no problem releasing Camp at the end of his contract.
But this now opens the door for Cardiff who have been interested in Camp for a while. They were going to make a move to sign him in the January transfer window until the aforementioned injury ended up scuppering any chance of that happening. But now that he is a free agent, Cardiff are ready to make another move for him.
The Bluebirds are looking for a new goalkeeper due to the position becoming very thin in depth following the end of several loans. The club were not able to sign Allan McGregor from Hull City on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell while Ben Amos has returned to Bolton Wanderers following their promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.
This has led to Cardiff to once again pursue Camp again and it seems very likely to happen now that he is a free agent. It also fits in well with the Welsh club’s plans as Warnock has admitted they have a small budget going into next season.
