Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale has revealed they've rejected offers for Roger Johnson and Peter Whittingham.

Uncompromising centre-half Johnson is believed to have attracted attention from two clubs, with Championship rivals Ipswich and an unnamed Premier League side rumoured to be leading the hunt.

Former Aston Villa winger Whittingham is a reported summer transfer target for Nottingham Forest.

"We're trying to keep the team together, not sell it," Ridsdale said. "The bids for Peter and Roger just shows how shrewd we've been in the transfer market.

"We bought both players for just a quarter-of-a-million and now we're rejecting bids of more than £1m for the both of them."
