Because of his fee (2-4 million would be my ballpark) we'd have to be offering a 3 year deal to him which would take him to his 32nd birthday so not terribly old certainly not in Downing territory.
Listen in the market where League 1 wingers are priced at 2 million getting Junior Hoilett for that kind of price would be good business the problem I see here is Cardiff will be desperate to keep their main creative player outside of silly money. Another one in the can't hurt to try but chances of it happening seem slim to me we paid 6 million for Howson who was entering his final year in this league teams would rather let them walk on a free than sell to a division rival remotely cheaply.
If Hoilett signed a new contract when Cardiff got promoted to the PL, he will probably be on far higher wages than we can afford. Plus i would imagine Cardiff will want quite a high fee for him even if he has only got one year of his contract still to run.
I don't think there is much in the story anyway, it is just the Gazette filling pages. The headline says we have identified him as a potential summer signing, all that means is we have written his name down on a list of possible targets.
