David Marshal who was wanted by numerous clubs this summer after an impressive season in the Premier League, has from day one let Ole Gunnar Solskjaer know where he wanted to play this coming season and that is with Cardiff City.

Marshall is settled with his family in Cardiff and has no intentions of leaving. There were talks of City wanting £10 million for him and to date no bid near that was ever reached.
Arsenal showed interest,but Marshal had no intentions of being their number two and there for declined to even discuss terms with them.
” I am happy at Cardiff and sharing the Captains armband with Huds is an honour ”

Marshall had two surprises for us yesterday, first he was fit to play and he will be captain when Mark Hudson doesn’t play.

Marsh looked certain to be ruled out after dislocating a finger at Yeovil, but he recovered faster than expected and Solskjaer said: “I didn’t think he would be ready, but David was desperate to play and came through with no problems.”

Marshall did make way for Simon Moore after 70 minutes – Joe Lewis, City’s third senior keeper, was missing as his wife is about to have a baby, but he will be fit to play against Blackburn Rovers,where he will be Marshals number two.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Marshall will wear the armband when Hudson is not in the team and with two new centre-backs likely to sign this week the club captain may not be involved at Blackburn next Friday night.
