Cardiff City defender Juan Cala says he could leave after being sent to train with the club's academy.

Centre-back Cala joined Cardiff from Sevilla in February 2014 and featured regularly in the Premier League.

But he has made only one Championship appearance this season and has reacted angrily on Twitter.

Cala, 24, wrote: "I just want the situation to be sorted out and to play here on [sic] in another club ASAP!! Thank you for support."

Cardiff have confirmed Cala is training with the academy but have made no further comment about the Spaniard's situation.

Cala is currently behind Ben Turner, Bruno Ecuele Manga and Sean Morrison in the Cardiff pecking order for a starting place at centre-back.

Cardiff manager Russell Slade has previously stated he is eager to reduce the size of his squad when the transfer window opens in January.
