Cardiff City Football Club can today confirm its retain list ahead of the 2013/14 Premier League season.
As anticipated, senior professionals Heidar Helguson and Stephen McPhail will leave the Club when their contracts expire on June 30th 2013. We wish both men the very best of luck for the future after fantastic service to Cardiff City. Kevin McNaughton, meanwhile, has been offered a new contract.
Development professionals Elliott Parish, Nat Jarvis and Jesse Darko will also leave Cardiff City this summer having not been offered new deals. Adedeji Oshilaja and Ronnie Hawkins have been offered contracts, while an option has been excercised to retain promising full-back Luke Coulson.
Six of the Club's apprentices have been offered professional deals after graduating through the Cardiff City Academy - Dane Griffiths, Gethyn Hill, Kane Owen, David Richards, Theo Wharton, Josh Yorwerth. In addition, Tommy O'Sullivan has been offered a professional deal with a year left to run on his apprentice agreement. We wish the seven of them the very best of luck as they progress with Kevin Cooper's Development Squad next season and congratulate them on their achievement.
