Cardiff City midfielder Loic Damour has hinted that he may be forced to leave the club in January should his playing time not increase.

Wales Online cite French outlet Foot Mercato in reporting that the midfielder has seen just 21 minutes of Premier League action this season.

The 27-year old moved to South Wales in the summer of 2017 following the expiry of his contract with French division two outfit Bourg-en-Bresse Peronnas.

He made 29 league appearances in the Championship as the Bluebirds were promoted, but has since been pushed down the pecking order by loan additions Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa.

With Joe Ralls, Aron Gunnarsson and even Jazz Richards also ahead of him in Neil Warnock’s plans, it seems Damour may be forced to leave.

The Frenchman said:

It’s many players’ dream to play in the Premier League, even more so for me because of my career. People asked about me, but I was never going to leave on loan for the Championship. I knew it would be hard, that there would be competition.

I wasn’t a starter, but in my head, I told myself that I wouldn’t leave before at least trying. I’m giving everything until December, and if my situation doesn’t get better, I might have to start thinking. At 27, I need to play.

Six months like this, it’s alright. You don’t leave without trying, but in December we’ll sit down and assess the situation.

Damour is under contract at the Cardiff City Stadium until the Summer of 2019.
