Trio target Ralls loan deal

Sky Sports understands Cardiff City midfielder Joe Ralls is a target for a number of clubs on loan.

Ralls enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Yeovil last season, making 38 appearances and scoring three goals for the Glovers.

The England Under-19 international is highly-regarded at Cardiff, but he is down the pecking order in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-team plans.

Cardiff feel Ralls would be best served to go out on loan again this season so that he is playing regular first-team football to aid his development.

Despite being only 20, Ralls has made over 50 appearances in the Championship and news of his availability on loan has alerted a number of clubs.

The likes of Charlton, Blackburn and Brentford are all thought to be tracking Ralls as they look to bolster their midfield options.
