English Championship outfit Cardiff City have cooled their interest in Portsmouth winger Ronan Curtis. This is according to the report from The News which stated that the Welsh team has decided against stepping up their interest in the 25-year-old winger.
Cardiff City have decided not to make a bid for Curtis this summer. Apart from Cardiff City, fellow English Championship club Blackburn Rovers have also been linked with a move for the Portsmouth winger who’s rated at £2m by his League One team. Portsmouth sounded out both Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City over a deal for the winger but they were greeted with a ‘tepid response’.
It’s highly unlikely that Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers willmake a bid for Curtis this summer although the former could still revisit a possible bid for the Portsmouth player according to the report via WalesOnline.
Portsmouth winger Curtis has talked about testing himself in the second tier of English football known as the Championship. The Republic of Ireland player might need to wait till the latter part of this summer’s transfer window to get his wish of a move to the English Championship.
WalesOnline reported that no new faces would arrive at Cardiff City according to the interview granted to manager Mick McCarthy.

Hunt is a free agent after leaving English Championship team Bristol City at the end of last season. The interest of Sheffield Wednesday in Hunt was revealed by YorkshireLive.
