Cardiff City to lose youngster

Losing Whisker will be a blow for Cardiff, especially at such a young age.

However, it would be hard to stand in the way of him moving to Manchester City. It is a chance for him to progress up through an elite academy of a Champions League side.

The Bluebirds are also securing a decent transfer fee for him that they can put towards a potential signing for the summer.

Whisker, who was born in France, will be leaving the Cardiff City Stadium having never played a senior match for the Championship side.

He faces a battle getting into City’s team down the line but his immediate focus will be on showing what he can do for their development sides.

The teenager is leaving behind a Cardiff team who still have a chance of getting into the play-offs in the second tier this term. They have won their last four games on the spin and are unbeaten in their last five outings as they look to keep their momentum going.

Erol Bulut’s men won 2-1 at home to automatic promotion chasing Ipswich Town last time out and scored two goals in added-on time.

The Welsh club are sat in 11th place in the table and are five points off the top six. They are back in action this weekend against rivals Swansea City.
