Bulut: I have my transfer targets no matter where I end up

Cardiff manager Erol Bulut said he is "prepared" for the summer and has drawn up a transfer list with his coaching staff – regardless of whether he is Bluebirds boss next season.

Bulut's contract has only four games left and he is waiting to see whether owner Vincent Tan will extend his current deal. He says talks with chairman Mehmet Dalman have been "positive" — you can read about that here — but ultimately it's Tan's call.

The manager — and players — has urged Tan to make the decision as quickly as possible, so the likes of pre-season and transfer plans can be thrashed out. But Bulut, who has previously said he has been unable to look ahead to the summer window, has said he and his coaching team have ideal targets in mind if they are allowed to continue into a second season.

"With my squad and coaching group we have many players on our list," Bulut said when asked about summer transfer plans.

"Also with the club, with the recruitment team, we spoke about many players. I am prepared a little for the next season if we can continue, so we can go on.

"But we don’t have much time so many players, you know the market is not cheap, so the club have to make a quick decision and quick plans to go on, otherwise it will be too late."

Liverpool's Nat Phillips 'will surely want regular football' next season

Nat Phillips could look to leave Liverpool this summer in search of regular football next season.

That is according to our sister title, who suggest that the 27-year-old is unlikely to get a look-in under the new manager at Anfield following Jurgen Klopp's departure at the end of the season.

Phillips has been nothing short of a colossus since joining on loan at the end of January and indeed Erol Bulut has made a point of saying that he would love to have him back in the Welsh capital next season – if the manager is kept on himself, of course.

"I know he has one more year on his contract with Liverpool," Bulut said earlier this month. “If I’m the coach here again next season, I don’t know, but I would like to see him again here."

Analysing Phillips' situation on Merseyside, report: "Liverpool defender Nat Phillips may decide that this is the summer to move on permanently from Anfield. He made his debut right back in 2019 and even featured a couple of times last season.

"But he has spent this term on loan at Celtic, and now at Cardiff, and will surely want to secure regular first-team football when the campaign comes to an end. He has another year remaining on his contract so Liverpool could still secure a fee."

Whether that fee would be prohibitive or not remains to be seen, but after Phillips' showing so far in a City shirt, they'd be wise to at least sound Liverpool out over any potential deal.

Goalkeeper coach joins Rangers

Former academy and first-team goalkeeping coach James Wood has joined Scottish giants Rangers.

Wood, the son of former Cardiff City goalkeeper George Wood, stepped up to fill the first-team goalkeeper coach role last season after Sabri Lamouchi let Graham Stack go.

After Bulut and Co rolled in, with Mario Galinovic named first-team goalkeeper coach, Wood stepped back into his position of academy coach. Wood had coached within City's academy since 2018.

Wood announced on social media earlier this month that he had left the club after accepting another role at a different club. Now, he has confirmed, he has taken up the post as academy goalkeeper coach in Glasgow, with Scottish Premiership side Rangers.

"Dream come true," he said. "Proud to be part of this club and represent what it stands for. Buzzing to get going."
