Cardiff Midfielder Whittingham To Sign?

Cardiff Midfielder Whittingham To Sign?

Peter Whittingham could become Tony Mowbray's first signing as Blackburn boss, according to HITC Sport.

Having spent the past decade at the club, Whittingham has reportedly turned down the contract offer from Cardiff as the former Aston Villa midfielder seeks a new challenge over an extended deal with the Championship side.

During his time at Cardiff, Whittingham has played over 450 games for the Bluebirds, including a spell in the Premier League and an FA Cup final. The midfielder had also become a fans' favourite at the Cardiff City Stadium.

These reports say a 'number of clubs have expressed an interest' but Blackburn have moved quickest to secure Whittingham, 32, and this will see Mowbray add the experienced and goalscoring threat to the Rovers squad ahead of the 2017-18 season.

If Whittingham does come to Ewood Park he would represent an impressive arrival but you can't help but feel his wage demands would be problematic to Blackburn, especially as a League One side?
