Real Valladolid striker Javi Guerra has denied he has already agreed to join Cardiff, while suggesting a summer move to the Welsh club could still be on the cards.
Reports in both England and Spain at the end of the January transfer window claimed that Guerra, 31 and out of contract in the summer, had already agreed a deal to play for the Premier League side next season.
But the centre-forward maintains he turned down a chance to move last month in order to help Valladolid battle against relegation, and that he is still considering other offers for his future.
“I insist that the decision to stay was the right one,” Guerra told AS. “Cardiff remain interested, but I have still not signed anything with anyone. There are more teams interested too, but we must wait until the summer -- now I am focused on saving Valladolid.”
Malaga-born Guerra has spent most of his career in Spain’s lower leagues with Valencia B, Alaves, Levante and Valladolid, but has impressed this season with 11 Primera Division goals in his first full season in the Spanish top flight.
