Craig Noone, 29, has been told by Bluebirds manager Neil Warnock he is surplus to requirements. Since the winger is in the last year of his contract, Cardiff look set to offload the winger. Warnock has previously stated:
“I think Nooney realises it's time for him to move on, I think he needs a new challenge now. He's done ever so well for the club since he's been here. I only ever played two years at a club and I was a winger and I was ready to move on, and I think Craig needs a new challenge, get his enthusiasm back.”
After leaving Liverpool as a teenager, Craig Noone started his football career playing for non-league sides Skelmersdale United F.C, Burscough F.C and Southport, before signing for Championship side Plymouth Argyle in 2008. Noone spent three years with Plymouth, before moving on to join Brighton at the end of 2010.
In 2012, Noone signed for Cardiff for £1 million, playing an integral role as Cardiff were promoted to the Premier League in 2013. Noone also scored the goal against Bolton that secured the Championship title for Cardiff.
With over 200 appearances at Championship level, Craig Noone is an experienced player who could do well for Wanderers.
Obviously, like any deal, Chris Taylor’s possible departure needs to happen first before anyone new is signed.

An article from HITC suggests a move for Craig Noone could well be permanent, with Cardiff City willing to let the winger leave for free.
It could well be a busy day for Wanderers tomorrow..
