Exclusive: Cardiff lead Ipswich and Preston for Scottish defender

Cardiff City are looking to land Hamilton Academical skipper Mikey Devlin, sources have told TEAMtalk.

The 24-year-old central defender is out-of-contract at the end of the season, and could leave on a free transfer in the summer.

Devlin has not played this season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in March, but he is now nearing full fitness and we understand Cardiff boss Neil Warnock is ready to take a gamble and land him.

Preston and Ipswich are also keen, and Hamilton look unlikely to be able to stand in his way come January.
