Cardiff City concluded their latest Championship League season by finishing at the 11th spot but Russell Slade wants to get into the Premier League and in order to do that, Slade believes that keeping hold of his best players is one of the best things he can do.
Peter Whittingham and Joe Mason have received interest from the Championship League club Wolverhampton meanwhile the 30 year old Scottish goal-keeper David Marshall is another player who was been recently linked with a possible move to Liverpool.
Despite the potential injection of cash that Russell Slade and Cardiff City could receive from selling their players, Slade stated that he will try a and keep hold of his top talents.
Cardiff City’s Russell Slade said: “The players we have who are important to us we, of course, will be looking to hold onto. We are about building the squad, making ourselves stronger than we were last term by adding the right players.
“We can’t do that if we are seeing players heading out in the opposite direction. Things are at an early stage right now but I cannot see a lot of my players heading out, we are in the business of making sure they are here to help us next season.”
The summer transfer window is just about to kick-off and there have already been clubs which have shown interest in particular players of Cardiff City and Rusell Slade is actually expecting more offers to be launched at some of his performers but the English coach is determined to maintain his star players despite all the rumors and reports that have been emerging stating that they were going to leave Cardiff City in the summer.
The owner of Cardiff City, Vicent Tan is involved in a cost-cutting regimen which has forced Russell Slade on having to cut down the wage-bill of his squad as well as having to sell some of his fringe players and he might have to do it once again in the summer transfer window.
