Le Fondre and Given latest deadline day rumours

Twice this evening City were linked to players. Firstly Talksport claimed that Cardiff had made a bid for Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre. The frontman has a decent record in the lower leagues but since then there has been no further mention.

Then a real surge of excitement. Sky Bet slashed the odds on Shay Given joining Cardiff. They even went as far as withdrawing the bet off their markest. Usually a surge in the betting causes this.

But nothing further has come from this.

At the time of writing there is 90 minutes to go before the deadline.
