Bolton boss Neil Lennon has confirmed Cardiff City have made an enquiry over the availability of Josh Vela.

Newspaper reports on Thursday suggested the Bluebirds were set to table a £450,000 offer for the Wanderers academy graduate, who has been with the club since the age of nine.

Now 22-years-old, Vela has established himself with the Championship's bottom club, making 57 appearances, but Lennon has revealed a decision needs to be made on his future after the club became aware of interest in the player.

"Josh has the same injury that he missed the Fulham game with," Lennon told Marc Iles, broadcast on BBC Radio Manchester.

"There has been an enquiry for Josh from Cardiff, but whether or not it is confirmed or goes through I don't know yet."

When pressed for an answer on whether a decision on the player's future would be taken out of Lennon's hands, the manager simply responded: "Yes".
