Again Cardiff City Got It Massively Wrong

Cardiff has a mixed history with the transfer market, and they have made several mistakes throughout the years.

Here, we examine four instances in which the Bluebirds completely erred in the transfer market.
Glatzel joined in the summer of 2019 after a standout season with Heidenheim in the 2. Bundesliga.

For the German team, which finished fifth in the standings for the 2018–19 season, the forward scored 13 goals and provided four assists.

He only spent 18 months with the Championship team, failing to live up to the £5.5 million price tag Cardiff paid for him.

In 51 league appearances, he scored 10 goals before making a cheap return to Germany.

Murphy was acquired by Cardiff from Norwich City in the summer of 2018 for a cost of £11 million.

In Daniel Farke’s first season as Norwich’s manager, Murphy had been an important member of the team, standing out as they finished 14th.

The Englishman eventually underperformed in comparison to the money paid to sign him since he was unable to assist Cardiff in staying in the Premier League after their promotion.

The attacker, who is now playing for League One team Oxford United, eventually left for Preston North End in 2021

Another player that was brought to Cardiff in the summer of 2013 after being promoted to the Premier League was Cornelius.

The Danish player, who came from FC Copenhagen, signed for a then-club-record amount of £7.5 million.

Whyte transferred from Oxford United to Cardiff in the summer of 2019 for a cost of roughly £2 million.

A transfer to Cardiff felt like an exciting next step in the defender’s career because he had shown a lot of promise for the University of Cambridge.

Whyte, however, did not live up to expectations during his time at Cardiff as the forward only made seven league appearances before being loaned out to teams like Hull City and Oxford in the ensuing transfer windows.

After returning from his loan stints, Whyte made just 14 more appearances for the club before leaving Cardiff for Portsmouth in the summer of 2023.
