The Football League Paper - - WHERE ARE THEY NOW? - By Paul Ed­di­son

KEITH Curle has set his sights on Cardiff City striker Rhys Healey as a Jan­uary re­in­force­ment as the Cum­bri­ans look to boost their pro­mo­tion am­bi­tions.

Healey has spent time on-loan at New­port this sea­son, but is back at the Cham­pi­onship club for the time be­ing.

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock is set to de­cide whether the 22-year-old is ready for reg­u­lar ac­tion with the Blue­birds but Curle is urg­ing him to send Healey up to Brunton Park.

He said: “I spoke to Neil three times and I’m bug­ging the life out of him!

“Neil’s got Healey back in to have a closer look him­self, then de­ci­sions will be made for the bet­ter­ment of Neil, Cardiff and the player. We posted our in­ter­est, he’s aware of our in­ter­est, and we can’t do any more than that.”

Carlisle are set to let a cou­ple of play­ers leave on loan in Jan­uary but Curle is adamant he will not need to off­load play­ers be­fore bring­ing in any fresh faces.
