Cardiff keeper Marshall only focused on survival despite transfer links

The Scotland international, who has been in fine form despite a turbulent season for the Bluebirds, is not thinking about his future and is determined to stay in the top flight
Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall is refusing to be drawn on his future while the club remain mired in a relegation battle.

The Scotland international has been one of the Bluebirds' most reliable performers in a difficult first season in the Premier League for the Welsh outfit.

Poor results on the pitch have left Cardiff three points adrift of safety, while off-field turmoil - including the controversial dismissal of former manager Malky Mackay - has also contributed to a frustrating campaign for supporters.

Marshall's performances this season - which have seen him record more saves than any other keeper in the top flight - have alerted the interest of other clubs, but the former Celtic hot-stopper is only interested in Cardiff's battle against the drop.

"I am desperate right now to try to help keep this club in the Premier League," he told Wales Online.

"At this moment in time my personal career does not really come into it. I am going to be judged over these last games now.

"That's me, all the other players and the club as a whole. I will be concentrating now on keeping Cardiff up. We've got a huge game coming up against Crystal Palace (on Saturday).

"The focus is on that and getting the three points. That is the main aim right now."
