Cardiff manager claims Borussia Dortmund wanted Malone

RUSSELL Slade has claimed that Champions League outfit Borussia Dortmund were interested in Scott Malone before his switch to Cardiff City.

The left back completed his £100,000-move to the Bluebirds on Wednesday – but, according to Slade, after turning down the German giants.

Slade said: "Several other clubs were in for Scott. Borussia Dortmund made strong enquiries about him, while there were other Championship clubs keen.

"We are delighted Scott has signed. He is 6ft 2ins tall, athletic, will give us a lot going forward and defensively.

"He is a natural left footed who has previously scored five goals in one season."

Dortmund currently have Germany international Marcel Schmelzer at left back.

Speaking to Cardiff's official site about his move to Wales, Malone said: "With my contract soon to expire at Millwall, I was looking for a new challenge.

"A few clubs were interested, but when I heard Cardiff City was one of them it was an easy decision to make.

"The Manager didn't need to persuade me at all into making this decision, I wanted to come and be part of his plans. I'm very happy to be here and eager to get started."

    If Dortmund were interested then we've missed a trick with a player swap, although I'd be pretty confident that Malone wouldn't have turned them down for Cardiff!

    All the more reason why we should be getting these players under contract. John Berylson was saying that he wanted young players with sell on value and we have allowed a young leftback to leave for a shadow of his worth and brought in a 31 year old temporary replacement.

    The only 'enquiry' Dortmund would ever make about Malone is "what the f*** is that?". Which incidentally is the same enquiry I've made about 99% of his crosses, shots and tackles this season. Hope he's as good for Cardiff as he's been for us this year, because that'll mean we've a good chance of climbing above them in the table.

    How about Glen Murray from Palarse on loan until the end of the season - wouldn't be a bad one?

      @lancslion: That would be a very good signing for the short term. doubt the Nigels would let him join us though or that his wage demands would be reasonable.

Mind you - i think theres going to be something big happening soon - who knows - this could be a smoke screen for Tim Cahill coming back to stay fit and get us out of the **it - stranger things have happened.....

    It couldn't have been Borussia Dortmund it must have been TSC Eintract Dortmund who play in the Bezirksliga 8th Division and play in the aptly named Stadion an der Flora which would make sense because he always tackled like a pansy.............................................................................
