The striker is not currently being considered for first-team selection.

He has spent time out on loan at Bolton Wanderers and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the past 18 months and has not played for the Bluebirds since the 17th January 2015.

Cardiff changed managers during the summer however with Paul Trollope taking over from Russell Slade. But any hope that this switch might have helped Le Fondre’s chances have been extinguished at the start of this campaign.
Today the former Reading player has taken to Twitter to express his willingness to enjoy an under-21 game v Chelsea – with his first-team future seemingly not with Cardiff.
But he also made it clear he’d rather be elsewhere, in the first-team:

Of course not, as I wanna play first team football but that's life at the minute. https://t.co/haA1twmorp— Adam Le Fondre (@A1F1E9) August 12, 2016
Le Fondre is a model professional so will no doubt be working hard to make his way back into the Cardiff first-team but has the likes of Frederic Gounongbe, Kenneth Zohore and Lex Immers ahead of him and fellow outcast Federico Macheda in the pecking order.
‘Alfie’, as he is affectionately known, will be hoping to get some first-team action soon – although it remains unlikely to be with Cardiff.
