Cardiff City has been placed on transfer embargo

In a heartbreaking turn of events, the tragic death of Argentine striker Emiliano Sala in January 2019 has had dire consequences for Cardiff City FC. Despite losing an appeal to pay his former club Nantes £5.3m as part of their record transfer deal, they remain embroiled in FIFA's embargo and are unable to make any new signings until it is lifted - something Chairman Mehmet Dalman is 'confident' will happen before the winter window opens.

With 17 new signings in the summer, Cardiff City embarked on a mission to challenge for promotion - but despite their ambitious transfer moves, they found themselves perilously close to relegation going into this weekend. In an effort to overcome the challenging situation faced by clubs across Europe due to Covid-19 implications, The Bluebirds are talking with both FIFA and EFL while awaiting confirmation from the Swiss Federal Court of Arbitration...which is expected in early 2023.

Cardiff failed to sign a West Ham prospect

The prospects of West Ham United ace Lennon Peake heading to Cardiff seem off the cards, with City's transfer embargo preventing a move. Just last month WalesOnline reported that following an impressive trial period featuring goals and training sessions at both reserve and first-team levels - it seemed as though his stay would become permanent this January. Unfortunately for Bluebirds fans, they'll now have to look elsewhere if they want fresh faces up front due to their current circumstances.

Peake burst onto the scene at West Ham, quickly becoming known as one of their most exciting young players. Unfortunately, his career has been stalled by a string of injuries, sitting out two full seasons before clutching to reignite it this year. However, with limited opportunities available in the academy set-up he appears ready for more regular game time elsewhere.

Cardiff is predicted to lose

David Prutton, a sports journalist for Sky Sports, predicts Queens Park Rangers will defeat Cardiff on Monday. Prutton stated in his most recent Sky Sports piece that Cardiff needed to defeat Blackpool at home if they were to escape their current predicament. Mark Hudson will be concerned if he takes the lead in a game like that but fails to secure all three points.
