Cardiff may have snapped up a keeper, but they have also had a second bid for Aberdeen winger Jonny Hayes rejected.

The Dons rejected a £500,000 bid from the Bluebirds last week for the Irish midfielder and the latest offer - according to Dons boss Derek McInnes - was essentially the same as the initial bid with a first £150,000 be paid up front.

Cardiff sign McGregor

Allan McGregor has joined Cardiff City on loan from Hull City.

Benitez outlines transfer blueprint

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez has explained the club’s transfer blueprint after claims Mike Ashley was growing weary with the Spaniard’s policy.

Reports suggested that the Toon owner was not happy with Benitez signing older players who could not be sold on for a profit, but the manager rubbished those claims.

When asked about his transfer blueprint, Benitez told the Chronicle:

A lot of people worry about that - but at the moment we still have time to do what we want to do.

I think the priority is to find the right players.

I have said before that the prices from some clubs says they don’t want to sell.

But still, we are looking for the players that are right for us.

If we find them we will try to sign them.

If we don’t find them we can’t, but we’re still working and we have time.

And because I am quite positive, and because everything is going so well in terms of position, business (in general), it’s an opportunity to improve a little bit and have more guarantees that we will achieve what we want to achieve.

On the deal Garner said:

The deal’s close. I’m not sure what’s stopping it getting it over the line but hopefully there will be one in before Saturday.

It will be a loan move.
