Here are the transfer headlines from the Cardiff City Stadium Friday, January 28.

Arter ‘told to find a new club’

Nottingham Forest are reportedly ready to offload former Cardiff City favourite Harry Arter before Monday’s deadline.

The 31-year old established himself as a firm favourite with fans during his spell in the capital, where he made 27 appearances under Neil Warnock during the club’s Premier League campaign.

He joined Forest from Bournemouth back in September, but has seemingly fallen down the pecking order under boss Chris Hughton, seeing just two minutes of action since mid-December.

Now, according to Football Insider, Hughton has told the midfielder to find a new club before Monday’s deadline.

Brown returns

Cardiff City have officially confirmed Ciaron Brown’s return from Scottish side Livingston.

The young centre-back is to link up with the rest of the City squad after Livi’s clash with Aberdeen on Saturday, with Bluebirds boss Mick McCarthy keen to assess his capabilities ahead of the second half of the season.

Livingston boss David Martindale said: “I wish Ciaron nothing but the best. He has been outstanding for us in all three spells at the club. He is held in high regard with all the coaches and players at the club and will be a big loss for the remainder of the season.

“I’m delighted that he has the opportunity to go down and show the new manager what he is capable of. I really hope he can push himself for a starting position with Cardiff City on a weekly basis.

“We feel we are more than adequately covered as we suspected Ciaron’s loan deal may not get extended. It’s no surprise that he has been called back and we wish Ciaron nothing but success.”

McCarthy eager for right-back options

Mick McCarthy admits he would like greater depth to his right-back options before the close of the January transfer window.

Perry Ng, who was signed by City earlier in the window, is currently the club’s only available recognised right-back, although Leandro Bacuna has previously shown he is capable of filling in.

McCarthy says he’s relaxed on what the rest of the transfer window holds, and hasn’t ruled out taking a closer look at the under-23s for more options.

“I don’t know what we’ve got in the 23s,” he said. “They trained with the residual squad that didn’t play on Wednesday and I was impressed with how they trained.

“Some of the lads were impressive. I have to find out if we have a right-back in that squad to see if they can step in. We’ll see. I’m sincerely hoping we don’t get an injury to Perry Ng.”
