Cardiff reportedly after Rotherham Striker

Cardiff City are reportedly interested in signing young Rotherham forward Joshua Kayode.



Thursday 8th April 2021


The 20-year-old is currently on loan at League Two outfit Carlisle United and has scored six goals in his 27 league appearances so far this term.

However, Football League World report that his performances have garnered interest from the Championship, with Cardiff, Middlesbrough, Brentford and Bournemouth all thought to be keen on signing him.

Kayode can play in a number of attacking positions, but this season has been deployed up front or on the right wing.

He impressed on loan at Brunton Park last term, scoring three times in five games before the season was curtailed, and has continued in decent form this season.

The Lagos-born forward has also represented the Republic of Ireland at under-21 level.

He has made just three appearances for the Millers, all in the EFL Trophy, and has enjoyed loan spells at Chesterfield and Gateshead before landing at Carlisle.

These reports have emerged amid recent claims that the Bluebirds are interested in signing Accrington Stanley forward Dion Charles.

Its claimed that both Cardiff and Derby County are keen on landing Accrington forward Charles, who has hit 17 goals in League One this term and earned a Northern Ireland call-up in the process.

The 25-year-old, left-footed frontman has reportedly grabbed the attention of a number of clubs in the second tier and Cardiff and Derby are said to be among those interested in acquiring his services. Huddersfield Town have also been credited with an interest.

Charles, who is thought to be valued at around £1.5m, is enjoying a real breakthrough season with Accrington, having been signed from League One outfit Southport two years ago. He has 27 goals and 11 assists in 79 games for Stanley.

Know what you’re getting at but seems more of a josh Murphy type striker.

Is 6 goals in 27 appearances for league two side Carlisle that impressive. Rotherham don't appear to regard him as good enough for their first team and his other loan spells were with Gateshead and Chesterfield. We won't even play Watters whose scoring record is much better.

If he’s a wide player, those stats are ok.
Depends I suppose. I believe he’s come from non-league so will he progress is the question. The age old question - Will he be the next Jamie Vardy?

Most managers have a preferred way of playing.trouble is that we only have one player at the club with any sort of pace that can threaten an opponents back line and he’s too inconsistent atm to be relied upon.
