Report: West Ham circling for Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge

West Ham are reportedly interested in Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

According to Wales Online, the Hammers are one of several clubs circling for the 29-year-old during this summer transfer window.

It is understood that Cardiff boss Neil Warnock isn’t in an hurry to lose the club’s player of the season.

The Welsh club did suffer relegation from the Premier League this campaign, but gave a strong account of themselves and ended up just two points away from safety.

Etheridge was the outstanding individual at the club, with 10 clean sheets in the 38 league games.

The 60-time capped Philippines international was also a mainstay during their promotion in the 2017/18 campaign and has a glowing reputation.

TBR’s View:

 

Etheridge excelled in the top flight this season and was one of the best goalkeepers around in the division.

He’s a brilliant shot-stopper that has a great organisation to his own game and is a reliable pair of hands, while he can play out comfortable from the back too.

Cardiff would have been relegated long before they were without him and he’s good enough to be playing Premier League football next season.

But West Ham already do have Lukasz Fabianski in their net and it’s surely unlikely Etheridge would want to move to fill a number two role.

He’s believed to be a man in demand and will surely not find it hard to get a move if allowed to exit.
