Cardiff boss Neil Harris: ‘I will have to sell players to make transfers’

Neil Harris says his Cardiff City squad is “too big” and has revealed he will have to sell players in order to make transfers in January.

The newly appointed Bluebirds boss made the admissions to Wales Online during a press conference and he made it clear that there would have to be outgoings if new blood is to be brought in.

He said: “As a football fan myself following various teams I know how fans think, you start piecing plans together ‘well he’s not played, he has played, is he going to go, is he going to stay’ it is far too early for all of that.


“But it’s what I am doing, I am sitting there thinking  ‘well I’ve not used him.’ But it is nothing like that at the moment, everyone is getting an opportunity, because until you get everybody on the pitch, you just don’t know about them.

“It is too early to make judgements about January but what I do know is it is a big squad and before we bring anyone in, players will have to leave.

We are getting better all the time, the players out are getting closer, it is getting to the stage where it is tough to put on XI v XI because of the amount of bodies we’ve got, in some ways it is too many, it is too big a squad.


“We work with it until January and then we start it there.”
