QPR’s Smith stalls over Cardiff move

Cardiff City’s bid to sign Tommy Smith from QPR appears to have stalled.

The 32-year-old forward is not in Rangers manager Mark Hughes’ first-team plans and Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay is hoping to persuade him to move to Wales.

Mackay, who recently signed Heidar Helguson from the R’s and is close to capturing Matt Connolly, knows Smith well from their time together at Watford.

Smith has been told he can leave Loftus Road, but by Tuesday morning he seemed no closer to deciding his future.

“There’s been an enquiry from Cardiff and certainly there’s an opportunity for Tommy to go there if he wants to,” Hughes told West London Sport.

“That’s been on offer for a little bit of time though and hasn’t really progressed, so I don’t know where things stand with that at this moment.”
