Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has admitted that the club are struggling to attract top quality players this summer according to

The club are set to begin their first ever season in the Premier League but the Bluebirds have yet to sign a single player for this years campaign, which has worried Mackay.

Cardiff are seen by many as favourites for relegation next season which could be why the club are struggling to get the very best players.

However, Mackay has said that he is determined to bolster his squad for the up and coming season.

“It’s [about] convincing some players to come to a club who are seen as one of the relegation favourites,” said Mackay in an interview.

“But I talk to them about the plan we have here going forward and the way that we’re going to play and the whole package that involves everything about Cardiff City, which I think is quite exciting.”

Mackay has also said that it will be a very tough ask to stay in the Premier League, even if he is able to make significant additions to his squad this summer.

The Bluebirds have been linked with Blackpool’s highly rated winger Tom Ince and are thought to be able to pay the £8 million asking price.

Reports have suggested that Cardiff also want to sign want-away Aston Villa striker Darren Bent.
