Cardiff are believed to have set their sights on former Swansea and current Birmingham City winger David Cotterill, according to reports.

Cotterill was part of an elite group in the Championship last season, creating over 100 goal scoring chances for his team mates, no doubt one of the reasons for Cardiff boss Russell Slade’s interest.  Cotterill himself ended up with 9 goals and 8 assists in what could be said to be a successful season for him personally.

Cotterill was on Swansea City’s books when they were promoted to the Premier League in 2011, after playing 35 times for them in the Championship.  The winger has also been capped 22 times for Wales, scoring 2 goals.

After arguably Cotterhill’s most successful period at Doncaster from 2012, he moved to Birmingham in 2014 to be closer to his family, who live in Wales.  A move to Cardiff this summer could therefore be very likely.
