Former Saint Nathaniel Clyne is involved in a transfer tussle between Bournemouth and Cardiff.

The Daily Mail have reported that the defender is wanted by Cherries boss Eddie Howe as he looks to tighten up his defence following a number of injuries to key players.

However, Cardiff are also believed to be keen in acquiring Clyne’s services with Neil Warnock previously managing the ex-Saint at Crystal Palace.

Clyne, 27, left St Mary’s to join Liverpool in 2015 for £12m and featured regularly in the starting line-up in his first two seasons.

He has since fallen behind Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and James Milner in manager Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order at Anfield.

Clyne suffered a back injury before the beginning of last season and failed to regain his place in the team.

The right back made 94 appearances for Saints during his three years at the club and also has 14 England caps to his name.
