The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

CARDIFF CITY’S hopes of strength­en­ing their wing op­tions suf­fered a blow af­ter Aberdeen re­jected a bid for Jonny Hayes.

Hayes, 29, has scored six goals in 22 matches for Aberdeen this term, and a move to the Blue­birds would see him re­turn to the Foot­ball League for the first time since 2009, when he left Le­ices­ter for In­ver­ness Cale­do­nian This­tle.

Dons man­ager Derek McInnes says the of­fer for the Re­pub­lic of Ire­land in­ter­na­tional was not enough to tempt them.

He added: “The bid fell way short of our val­u­a­tion and Jonny, as with all the squad, re­mains an in­te­gral part of the plans.”
