Cardiff City goalkeeper wanted by other clubs



Cardiff City goalkeeper Rohan Luthra is drawing interest from other clubs this summer, according to Sky Sports (live transfer blog, 22.05.24, 23.29).

Cardiff City are likely to part ways with the stopper when his contract expires at the end of next month. He has yet to sign an extension with the Championship side and is set to become a free agent.

Luthra, 22, will consider his options ahead of the 2024/25 season. He has served as a backup at Cardiff City Stadium in recent years.

According to Sky Sports’ most recent report on his future, other teams are keeping track of his status.

This past season, the Bluebirds finished 12th in the second tier, 11 points shy of the playoffs. It remains to be seen if their supervisor, Erol Bulut, will stay put.

Cardiff City man wanted

Cardiff City recruited Luthra in 2021 to improve their goalkeeping department. He has only appeared for their first team once since, thus parting ways with him would be a mutually beneficial decision.

His chances of being their number one are poor, thus leaving would allow him to establish roots elsewhere.

Luthra spent the season on loan at Slough Town in the non-league, where he played 12 games to get experience in the National League South.

Prior to his move to Wales, he progressed through Crystal Palace’s academy ranks and was a fixture for the Eagles at several youth levels.

The Premier League club gave him his first professional contract, but he left Selhurst Park just under three years ago.

What next for Cardiff City stopper?

Luthra will analyze his options and pick which level he wants to play at next. It is also unknown which clubs are currently interested in him, whether they are in England or abroad.

In the meanwhile, Cardiff City will focus on the following season, hoping to improve on their 12th-place performance.

They need to iron out their managerial problem, and letting Bulut leave would feel like starting over. Luthra is one of a handful players who will become accessible, along with Sheyi Ojo and Romaine Sawyers.
