West Ham make enquiry for Cardiff's Whittingham

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay has confirmed that West Ham United have made an enquiry for midfielder Peter Whittingham.

The 27-year old, who has scored seven Championship goals so far this term, is being linked with a January move to Upton Park but Mackay has ruled out the potential sale of the former Aston Villa man.

"Peter Whittingham is not for sale," said Mackay.

"I'm here to improve this football club and bring other players in to it, not sell the players I have.

"We've had an approach in terms of a phone call but people call and ask questions regularly about players in football. The answer to West Ham regarding Peter was: 'Not for sale'.

"We're trying to build something here and Peter is a big part of that. If you don't get calls for your players then that tells its own story.

"Our chairman and directors feel the same way. We want to go forward at full strength and want to add to our squad."
