Who is this?

Cardiff City man could leave

Cardiff signed Semenyo back in 2021 after he impressed them on trial. His brother, Antoine, is a striker for AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Prior to his switch to the Cardiff City Stadium, he played in non-league for Mangotsfield Town.

He has been a regular for the Bluebirds’ Under-21’s side under Darren Purse over recent times but hasn’t been able to make the step up into the first-team.

The prospect made his first and only senior appearance for the Welsh outfit to date in an FA Cup clash against Premier League giants Liverpool in 2021.

Cutting ties with Semenyo in a few months’ time would suit all parties involved. His chances of breaking into their starting XI are slim in the future and finding a new home would help him get some regular football, which is what he needs at this stage of his career.

Cardiff are back in action this weekend at home to Hull City and will be eager to build on their 2-1 win away at Coventry City last time out.

Erol Bulut’s side are sat in 11th place in the table and their chances of making the play-offs have all but faded away now. They are eight points off the top six with six fixtures left to play.

Nevertheless, they will be eager to end this campaign on a high as they prepare for the summer.
