' Aron Gunnarsson '

By Ian Mitchelmore

What's his situation?

The Icelandic warrior's contract with the Bluebirds expires at the end of the season, and Neil Warnock previously revealed that the 27-year-old turned down a new deal having admitted he doesn't want to play in the Championship next season.

It could mean the Iceman may be persuaded to extend his stay in the Welsh capital if Warnock can guide the Bluebirds into the promised land of the Premier League.

But having already turned down a fresh deal, Gunnarsson seems destined for the exit door in the summer if Cardiff don't go up.






What's likely to happen in January?

It's a difficult one for the midfield ace as he remains sidelined with an ankle injury and does not look like returning to the pitch until February.

He has not played a single minute of action for the Bluebirds since playing 74 minutes in the 1-0 win over Barnsley at Oakwell in November, but that has not stopped clubs being linked with the Euro 2016 star.

It has previously been reported that Turkish giants Besiktas were eyeing up a move for Gunnarsson, but while this month looks like being the final opportunity for the Bluebirds to cash in on the midfielder should they want to do so, the Bluebirds will no doubt want to keep the Iceland international to aid their chances of securing promotion and then reassess the situation in the summer.

We'll see, he's said himself he'll stay if we get promoted. We picked him up on a free and he helped us get promoted and reach a cup final - so he's helped bring a huge financial windfall for us as it is. I'd love a fee but it is what it is :bluescarf:

It's an interesting one. I think so, he made the step up for the Euros which IMO improved him massively and he's in his peak years. I honestly was never entirely impressed by him prior to 2016 - but he's improved a lot and added a lot to his game, so why not? :occasion5:

We should not be held to ransom by any player, as you say, if he wants to go then let him. If he wants to be a Cardiff City player then sign the contract whether we are in the championship or the Premier league. He is easily replaceable anyway.

Only Gunnar knows his body and bank balance. He is an old 27 year old with many miles on the clock. For the best part of a decade he is been plying his trade at championship level which we know is demanding coupled with living in a foreign country and playing international football.
The fact he doesn't want to commit to another three seasons at our level suggests to me he has peaked. He will never be a premier league DM, he is a distributor and if the legs and energy are waning its time to let him go. He cost us nothing has given all he can give and has been rewarded more than adequately.
Its a shame for him we never had Warnock three and a half seasons earlier as his brand of football suits his skill set, but that's life.
We were never going to get that much for him, so with only a few months left on his contract he'll be better use for the last quarter of the season push, hopefully towards the playoffs.

Not for me, even if he was still under contract. He simply didn't have the pace to cope in the Prem last time and 3/4 seasons ago so why do people think he can cope now ? He's had a load of injuries since and certainly isn't any quicker now than he was then.

He's been really good value for us and no doubting his commitment so far but I think it's time to go. It will be his choice if we don't get promoted but ours if we do.

7 years at the club
and in those 7 years over a 100 players have played in our 1st team and only 1..Peter Whittingham has played more..no body else comes close..
so all this we can do better?..5 managers,7 years, 100 players ,hundreds of millions of pounds in wages and transfer fees and yet if 100% fit he would play this Saturday...???????????
been a good servant...fantastic value for money..and not as easy to replace as it seems.

Just because he has been here a long time doesn't mean he is the best. Yes he would start Saturday if fit and thats because we haven't bought well in midfield. If we went up we need better. Medel did his job a lot better in the prem, it came at a cost but players are out there. He was brilliant value though can't knock that.

we havent bought well in midfield 5 managers..7 years..12 windows..?..yet we can get better .im pretty sure people saying this would include bryson in the better bracket prior to signing him..sounds easy but the grass isnt always greener...Gunnerson took part in more than half our prem games 17 starts and 6 as sub the vast majority while Medel was on the park too...
i dont think he is a world beater either but dont think he deserves the contempt in this thread .Warnock will do well to sign us someone thats still a first teamer in 7 years is truth.

I don't think we have bought a direct replacement for him and don't think Bryson or Demour are even slightly similar. Closest is Halford who is useless.
I don't agree either, I don't think managers have tried to replace him in 7 years, they haven't needed to as he has always signed new deals.
I don't think he was up to it in the prem at all and he won't sign a deal with us in the championship so no problem with that so expect him to leave but if we went up if also say goodbye.

find it very very strange that fans are so quick to turn on the players that have contributed the most.

He's not good enough for the Premier league because he can't pass. He's a great battler but need more than thay at the top level.

I don't think we have bought a direct replacement for him and don't think Bryson or Demour are even slightly similar. Closest is Halford who is useless.
I don't agree either, I don't think managers have tried to replace him in 7 years, they haven't needed to as he has always signed new deals.
I don't think he was up to it in the prem at all and he won't sign a deal with us in the championship so no problem with that so expect him to leave but if we went up if also say goodbye.



find it very very strange that fans are so quick to turn on the players that have contributed the most.
and why havent managers tried to replace a player that we can do better than.? because he has signed new deals means he was offered them...which suggests the managers offering those contracts did not think they could do better..????????


He is a solid championship player.
Who has turned on him? I have no problem with him signing new deals, he has been a great servant. I don't blame him for looking for a better deal, never blame a player for looking for more money elsewhere. However loyalty does not mean I would offer him a deal in the prem if we ever made it as I simply don't believe he is good enough.
My thoughts on the re-branding??

and in those 7 years over a 100 players have played in our 1st team and only 1..Peter Whittingham has played more..no body else comes close..
so all this we can do better?..5 managers,7 years, 100 players ,hundreds of millions of pounds in wages and transfer fees and yet if 100% fit he would play this Saturday...???????????
been a good servant...fantastic value for money..and not as easy to replace as it seems.


Just because he has been here a long time doesn't mean he is the best. Yes he would start Saturday if fit and thats because we haven't bought well in midfield. If we went up we need better. Medel did his job a lot better in the prem, it came at a cost but players are out there. He was brilliant value though can't knock that.

the first line of my post wasnt aimed at you.. more the thread itself..
i do find it strange though..not just this thread , for a club thats wasted an absolute fortune on uninterested,injured,not good enough,free loaders ,it ends up the players that have contributed the most seem to get all the stick..
as for loyalty..there is none in football other than fans loyalty to their club ,but even that doesnt extend to loyalty to managers or players half a dozen poor games and its sell or sack..

We'll see, he's said himself he'll stay if we get promoted. We picked him up on a free and he helped us get promoted and reach a cup final - so he's helped bring a huge financial windfall for us as it is. I'd love a fee but it is what it is :bluescarf:


IF and its a big IF we get promoted will he be good enough for the PL? :bluebird:


It's an interesting one. I think so, he made the step up for the Euros which IMO improved him massively and he's in his peak years. I honestly was never entirely impressed by him prior to 2016 - but he's improved a lot and added a lot to his game, so why not? :occasion5:



He's not good enough for the Premier league because he can't pass. He's a great battler but need more than thay at the top level.


I don't doubt we'd find a better play than him. But I'd still try to get him down to a contract. Works hard, box-to-box, good character. Good player to have around really.
