Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has admitted that he’s found the January transfer window frustrating so far, but the club are still working on deals.
As reported by BBC Sport, the Bluebirds are yet to sign a player this month and have seen a couple of deals collapse.
The 70-year-old was publically critical of Nathaniel Clyne and his club Liverpool after a loan move for the right-back collapsed and the England international opted to join AFC Bournemouth instead.
Furthermore, as reported by Read Cardiff earlier this week, the Bluebirds failed to finalise a move for Nice midfielder Adrien Tameze, despite agreeing a £10m fee for the player.
In addition, the club are keen to sign a striker with make-shift forward Callum Patterson leading the Bluebirds line for the majority of this campaign to date.
Warnock revealed that negotiations are ongoing for Nantes forward Emiliano Sala, but a deal for the Argentinian will not be completed in the near future.
On his general frustrations and the Sala saga, Warnock said:
One day you think you are almost there and then you slide back down. You get your hopes built up. People say ‘yes that’s a done deal’ and all of a sudden the next day it’s not a done deal. You have to learn to live with that really. That is why you have to say, ‘right we don’t get any players in, we have to get points with what we have got and continue with the miracle.
I spoke to the owner of the club and his son. They have got one or two good players there. Sala was playing in the game the other night but there were two or three others we were looking at. Anything can happen. I haven’t written anything off but I have nothing concrete with anybody.
