Cardiff enter Goodwillie talks

Cardiff City have real hopes of signing Scotland striker David Goodwillie from Dundee United.

Rangers might have already rather been put off by the Taysiders' 2m asking price for the 22-year-old marksman, but new Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay has money available to spend.

The Welsh club completed the signing of United winger Craig Conway on Thursday after turning down a new deal. Conway, 26, had also been a possible target of Rangers, Watford, Leeds United and Leicester City.

The Tannadice club previously rejected a couple of earlier offers for leading goalscorer Goodwillie from Rangers in January. Goodwillie scored eighteen times last season and Tangerines manager Peter Houston admits he can't really win either way.

"I'm caught between a rock and a hard place with Goody," he told BBC Scotland. "If he goes, it'll allow me to strengthen the team, but I'd be foolish to want rid of him. He scores between 15 and 20 goals a season.

"But we're a provincial club and, if somebody offers the right money for him, he'll be off," Houston reasoned. "Rangers enquired about what his valuation was. The chairman told them what that is and I think Rangers felt it was a bit too much for them.

"So far, there has been no bid and no money on the table from them."
