Newcastle legend Shearer admits failed Cardiff talks

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has confirmed talks with Cardiff City about the vacant manager's post.

The former Newcastle boss has been one of the people considered for the vacant post, but announced in a statement he would not be taking up the role.

Shearer said: "I can confirm that I was one of the candidates that the club spoke to about the vacant manager's position at Cardiff City.

"During these talks I was most impressed with the vision, ambition and determination of the owner Dato Chan Tien Ghee and the board. Unfortunately those talks were unsuccessful.

"Cardiff City is a great club and I wish them every success next season."
