Cardiff City boss Steve Morison has insisted that the club have not been contacted over striker Kieffer Moore despite reported interest from Bournemouth.

The Bluebirds and Wales striker was subject of interest from Wolves in the summer after a stellar maiden season in the Welsh capital, which saw him net 20 goals for the club.

However, Wolves' advances were batted away, but transfer speculation has once again swirled, as is customary, in this January window.

It was reported last week that Bournemouth were interested in signing Moore, with Cardiff having slapped a £10m price tag on his head.

Then Chris Wood's move from Burnley to Newcastle had many, including Cardiff legend Danny Gabbidon, concerned that they were going to replace the New Zealander like-for-like and come for Moore in this window.

However, Morison claimed such speculation and links had simply been "made up" in the press and that no one at the club had heard of anything concrete pertaining to Moore's potential exit.

"Ultimately, every window it is a conversation," Morison said. "It’s just something that’s made up in the press, because until someone gives us an actual phone call, it feels like a bit of a pointless conversation.

"We keep having the same conversation and nothing ever changes. As far as I’m concerned, Kieffer hasn’t knocked on my door or an agent hasn’t phoned me up, or the board.

"Chris Wood signs for Newcastle and everyone will be telling me he is going to Burnley tomorrow.

"Someone puts it on social media and it causes an unnecessary storm."

When asked to confirm that Moore did in fact want to stay, Morison responded: "Unless you lot ask me the question, it’s not something which is spoken about. "There is nothing in it whatsoever."

The forward has been absent since he limped off in the game against Bournemouth on December 30.

He is once again unavailable for this weekend's clash with Blackburn Rovers as he attempts to recover from the ankle injury and his latest bout of Covid-19.

Not a great interviewee but pleased to read he sees Tom Sang as a midfielder

If he's staying all well and good but he needs to shape up a bit sharpish.

We know what he can do, he just isn't doing it this season, in part due to his unavailability so often.

Managers always claim they don't read forums and social media and yet they always seem suspiciously clued up on what's being said on there.

He’s really going to have to get into the 21st century if he wants a career in management. Rumours, social media. Etc it’s all part of the game now especially when we are in the era of the transfer window.

Addressing the press as “you lot” is not great either. If you don’t have the press on your side they can whip up negative feeling towards you very easily.

I should be last person to complain about someone being blunt and forthright but fuck me even i can see he needs to reign the defensive attitude in a bit.

Would be nice if one day we had a manager that embraced the forums as well, whenever they've talked about us in the past it's always been in a negative way.

A manager would never come out and slate the fans but that's all forums are, just a place for fans to congregate and chat so a bit of respect for a change wouldn't go amiss.

Unfortunately when you’ve got unscrupulous individuals like Annis and Carl making up rumours and pretending to be staff it doesn’t help. Every forum gets tarred with the same brush.

I get the impression he doesn’t want to be here. The wolves offer in the summer turned his head and he probably feels that he should be playing for a mid-table team in the Premier League, rather than a relegation scrap in the Champion.

He’s not getting in ahead of Jimenez or Silva so don’t see how he gets much game time apart from 10 mins here and there for wolves

The trouble with forums is that there are various opinions and not all are that favourable towards the club and/or management.
They have some control over the press but forums offer an unedited, unregulated opinion on them, by the most important people - the fans. They don’t like what they’re reading when (more often than not) the team is doing badly.

NW used to big up the forums but that was in the promotion season, so most comments were positive.

Not sure why any manager would pay attention to the forums tbh.

It gives an honest reflection of what the fans think.
Yes, but loads of bullshit too and even the better posters won't know much about the game compared to the pros and will be largely oblivious to stuff behind the scenes.

Probably makes great reading for players / managers when they're doing well and pretty grim and personal when struggling. Probably best ignored for players as its just noise [great place for fans though].

The trouble is people are naturally inquisitive and care what others think about them. I’m sure they all dip in to see what the fans think of them, it’s human nature.
