Cardiff City are still waiting to hear if young defender Adam Matthews intends to sign a new contract with the club.
Matthews who is 19-years-old today has been offered a new contract by the club but has not yet committed himself to signing on the dotted line.
“An offer has been made and we are waiting to hear from Adam,” said Cardiff City chief executive Gethin Jenkins this week.
The youngster made over thirty appearances for the Bluebirds last season and had reportedly come to the attention of Manchester United and Arsenal.
However this season Matthew has found it hard to maintain the progress from last term starting just two Championship matches and appearing from the bench on six occasions.
And with the competition for places likely intensify as Manager Dave Jones looks to strengthen his defensive options Matthews may wait until the summer to resolve his future.
Matthews has appeared unconcerned by his lack of game seemingly happy to make the most of any opportunities that do come his way. “I’ve played in quite a few matches this season and I’m making progress,” said Matthews
“I have a long way to go to reach my potential and I can’t expect to play every week with quality defenders like Kevin McNaughton and Lee Naylor in front of me. They both help me a lot and I am learning all the time.”
“Every young player wants to be involved all the time, but the team are winning games and stand second in the table. I won’t be moaning about not starting, but I will also be ready if the gaffer needs me. There is a long way to go this season.”
