It’s being reported that newly promoted Premier League side Cardiff City have now cooled their interest in West Bromwich Albion winger Matt Phillips.

I hadn’t actually caught this speculation so I’m not sure how long it’s been ongoing, but the Express & Star have reported that they were quoted £15million earlier this summer and have now decided to not progress a deal any further.

As a rumour, it appears it might be pretty fresh though as their report states that Neil Warnock has now confirmed contact over the 27-year-old but that they were certainly put off when we let them know the valuation they had to reach if they expected us to do business before the transfer deadline window slams shut.

Middlesbrough are also linked with him as Tony Pulis knows him well, but whether Boro would stretch to that fee for the Scotland international remains to be seen.
