At 32 years old Peter Wittingham is close to retirement age but in modern football he has probably still got several years in him, he signed a 2 year contract at Rovers keeping at the club until 2019. Wittingham has had a long Career having played for 4 clubs, 2 of which were loans.

Peter may have aged but he made 37 appearances last year and scored 7 goals. Peter Wittingham is a legend in the eyes of many Cardiff Fans and I asked them for their opinion on him:
@JayTeeCD “He’s worth the price of admission alone some weeks, even if you lose.
@murfilicious “would not be surprised if he is up for L1 player of the year in 12 months’ time – top player, even if some of his pace is gone!”
@benphillipsss “Never seen a player that’s this level of “too good for league one”, Lost a lot of pace but technically faultless”
@AlynWilliams “Got a monster left foot, if you get free kicks anywhere near the box you want him on it.”
@THgolf "HE can put a cross on the head of a worm and lethal from dead ball. Lost a bit of pace, but can produce moments of magic."
So it seems that we’ve really pulled off a scalp here or at least the Cardiff fans think so let’s just hope (To quote @RoversTweet) lets hope he’s not the next Danny Murphy, something tells me he won’t be…
