Jay Bothroyd Tweets on coming to watch Cardiff City this month

Jay Bothroyd is set to come watch his former club in coming weeks.

Jay Bothroyd was certainly a hero during his spell with Cardiff City. The former Arsenal youngster signed for The Bluebirds in 2008 for £350,000 from Wolves - Cardiff beating off competition from Reading and Hull for his signature.

He ended up banging in the goals for the Welsh club. When he left for QPR in 2011 he had scored 45 goals in 133 games for Cardiff and earned his one and only England cap under Fabio Capello.

So Cardiff was good for him, and he was good for Cardiff.

Nowadays Bothroyd's situation is unclear.

He joined Thai club Muangthong United back in January. In a recent interview Muangthong United's assistant coach spoke about Bothroyd in a past tense but he remains in the squad list on their official site.

Regardless it would seem his heart is still at one club, Cardiff City.

He has been Tweeting about coming to watch the club and cheer them on in the coming weeks:

However, a move back to Cardiff seems unlikely. They have the likes of Kenwyne Jones, Adam Le Fondre, Federico Macheda and Javi Guerra already at the club and his addition would be seen by many as something of a step backward from Russell Slade and co.

However, don't write it off just yet. Bothroyd would surely like one last crack in England.
