CARDIFF CITY, the Third Division champions, have placed Phil Stant on the transfer list, 48 hours after he scored a hat-trick in the club's 5-0 win over Rhyl in the Welsh Cup final, following a disagreement over bonuses.

ENZO SCIFO, the Belgian player, said that he is leaving Torino at the end of the season but that the club would not allow him to be transferred to their Turin rivals, Juventus, who had shown an interest. Parma and Monaco are possible alternatives.

KENNY HIBBITT, the Walsall manager, is to be offered a new two-year contract despite the team's 5-1 defeat in the the first leg of the Third Division play-off semi-final at Crewe last Sunday.
