Cardiff City have not yet approached West Ham United over the signing of midfielder Robert Snodgrass despite reported interest.

Snodgrass will return to West Ham this summer after his loan spell with Aston Villa came to an end following play-off final defeat to Fulham.

The 30-year-old’s return to the London Stadium has reportedly sparked interest from a number of clubs, including Cardiff City.

However, Football.London report that West Ham haven’t received any approaches for the player, meaning the Bluebirds are yet to register their interest.

It was thought that Villa would turn Snodgrass’ loan move permanent, but financial trouble at Villa Park means that’s no longer viable.

It’s reported that the Scotland international’s wage amounts to around £60,000 per week and Aston Villa were previously paying 70% of that.

The midfielder’s large wages may be an issue for some clubs, including Cardiff, who, despite gaining promotion to the Premier League, don’t want to pay big wages for players.

However, with the Hammers likely to offload Snodgrass for less than the £10.2 million they signed him for, they may be room for manoeuvre.

Bliuebirds boss Neil Warnock is believed to be a big fan of Snodgrass after briefly working with him during his time in charge of Leeds United.

However, Cardiff City are yet to make their move, or even declare interest as they continue to search for their first summer signing since promotion to the Premier League in May.
