CARDIFF City remain keen on a January deal for Millwall left back Scott Malone.

NewsAtDen revealed in November that Malone was on the radar of Bluebirds boss Russell Slade. Crystal Palace have also scouted the 23-year-old this season.

Blackburn were monitoring his situation too but have been placed under an embargo.

Cardiff, though, could be the first club to follow through on their interest when the transfer window opens in the New Year.

Malone's deal at The Den expires in the summer and an extension has not been discussed, so he would only command a nominal fee if he did leave.

Asked about interest in his players, Ian Holloway said: "I wish my phone was ringing off the hook because then you've got some swaps you could make, but it certainly isn't."

On Malone, he added: "I've had a lot of thoughts about Malone, not just to do with January.

"Why did he choose that pass? That was a good one, or that was a bad one. What about his hip?

"He's trying to play through a slight problem and he's having a scan this afternoon. After he's played, it locks up and that's pretty unusual. We'll get to the bottom of it."

    Doesn't sound like we can even try selling him January if he's carrying a mysterious injury......

    Seems Ollie is paving the way for his exit..... Shame to lose him.
