Cardiff City manager Russell Slade has confirmed that West Bromwich Albion have made an enquiry for their goalkeeper.

The future of Scotland international David Marshall has been largely up in the air following their relegation from the Premier League given his performances in the 2013-14 season and he has been continually linked with a number of sides in the top flight but a deal has never quite happened for one reason or another.

With speculation suggesting that we’ve put a formal offer of £5million in – that may or may not have been rejected – Albion have played the story down apparently, but Slade is quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying.

‘Yes, West Brom have made an enquiry, there is definite interest there. It`s with the chairman now. I would not want to lose a player of David`s quality. He is an integral part of what we have done. He is a talent and is a sought after player every summer.’

If it’s chairman negotiation time then presumably that would be fee based and ironing out the details, and we have been linked with a few keepers recently including Crystal Palace’s Wayne Hennessey who head coach Tony Pulis took to them when he was there.

Ben Foster remains out until October and it looks like Pulis is looking for competition for Boaz Myhill despite him signing a new deal recently.
