Hammers linked with Gerrard swoop

The 24-year-old joined the Bluebirds from Walsall last year and was
a regular in Dave Jones’ side as the club missed out on promotion
via the play-offs. However, this season has seen Gerrard
surprisingly left on the bench for Cardiff’s Championship fixtures
and his sole appearance came in the Carling Cup. He is now
attracting interest from the Premier League, with West Ham
understood to be weighing up a move for the centre-half. Wigan and
Sheffield Wednesday have also been linked with Gerrard, although
Owls boss Alan Irvine played down an interest in the defender. “I
am surprised to hear that one,” said Irvine. “I would expect that
Anthony Gerrard’s under contract which would require there to be a
fee involved, and we don’t have any money.”
