Lee Tomlin’s return to the City Ground will only happen if Cardiff City pay a substantial percentage of the forward’s wages, according to the Nottingham Post‘s Paul Taylor.

When asked during a webchat about a potential loan offer for the 29-year-old before August 31st, the journalist said:

“If Cardiff do want to move him out on loan – particularly to any club in the Championship – they are going to have to pay a significant portion of those wages to make it happen.”

Tomlin was given a sizeable wage rise on Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League, but Wales Online report he is not part of Neil Warnock’s first team plans.

He was excellent during his six-month spell with us in the second half of last season, and there has been talk that he could be re-signed.

However, after our recruitment drive this summer, we have an abundance of talent who can play in his position, and it seems that we’ll only make a move if the deal is right financially.

During his 15 appearances for us last campaign, Tomlin scored four goals and provided three assists before returning to Wales.
