Cardiff tipped to snub bid as Fulham are linked with Carlton Cole

Cardiff City are set to reject an offer from Fulham for Peter Whittingham, according to The Sun on Sunday, while West Ham striker Carlton Cole has been linked with a move to Craven Cottage.

It is claimed Fulham will offer £2.5m for Bluebirds midfielder Whittingham, who scored 13 goals last season.

The Sunday Express say Fulham want Fraser Fyvie, 19, who has turned down a new deal at Aberdeen, while The Sun suggest the Whites are one of several clubs interested in Burnley striker Charlie Austin.

There is continued speculation about Clint Dempsey’s future, with the Daily Star on Sunday reporting that Liverpool’s American owners have sanctioned an £8m bid to buy him from Fulham.

The People, however, suggest the Anfield club’s offer is unlikely to be more than £6m.

Striker Andy Carroll has been linked with a move to west London as part of a possible deal for Dempsey.

The former Newcastle man is also wanted by West Ham, and The People say Fulham will move for Cole if the Hammers get Carroll.

The People also claim that Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones is interested in signing Joey Barton on loan from QPR.
