Wigan boss Bruce leads battle for Cardiff striker McCormack

Cardiff City have slapped a £5 million price-tag on striker Ross McCormack.

Cardiff City have slapped a £5 million price-tag on striker Ross McCormack.

The Daily Record says Wigan manager Steve Bruce leads the charge of Premiership sides for the 22-year-old striker, now one of the most wanted players in the Championship after his side's failure to reach the play-offs.

Newly-promoted Wolves are also known to be keen, although a proposed £3m bid by them would fall well short of Cardiff's valuation.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish, who gave the player his Rangers debut, is also interested while Sunderland and Fulham have had him watched many times over the past season.
