The 19-year-old is arguably the hottest prospect outside The Premiership having grabbed 13 goals already this season.
A host of clubs including Liverpool, Tottenham, West Ham, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Wigan, Sheffield United and Norwich have all checked on him in recent months and bids are anticipated during this month's transfer window.
City boss Dave Jones has admitted that he fears for the future of his prized asset, but Jerome's advisor Tony Finnigan of Wright Wright Wright - insists the teenager is fully committed to his current employers.
Ç£Cameron will remain a Cardiff player until the club see fit,Ç¥ Finnigan told skysports.com.
Ç£If I did envisage any sort of bid then naturally we would assume that we would be told, but that is not a concern at the moment.
Ç£Cameron is old school - his work ethics are that of somebody twice his age.
Ç£He has a lot to learn, but he knows that and that is why he works so hard and listens to everything that he is told.
Ç£Terry Burton (Cardiff assistant manager) has worked with some of the finest young players in British football and has helped lads like Nigel Reo-Coker get where they are today, so Cameron knows how good a grounding he is getting at the moment.Ç¥
Norwich boss Nigel Worthington has admitted that he is keen on signing the young striker and that he has made an inquiry about him
"Cameron Jerome is one that we've made an initial inquiry about," Worthington told the Norwich Evening News.
"He's a player that we very much like, but for now that's as far as it's gone. He would be a very useful addition to our current squad."
