Breaking news from the Bluebirds' base in Cornwall...
We are delighted to announce that Cardiff City FC Club Captain, Sean Morrison, has signed a new three-year deal with the Bluebirds.
The twenty-six-year old centre-half has committed to a new contract that will keep him at Cardiff City Stadium until the summer of 2020.
Having signed for City in the summer of 2014, Sean has made 120 appearances in all competitions and scored thirteen goals. He was made Club Captain in the summer of 2016.
Speaking to iFollow Cardiff City on Thursday morning, Sean said: “I’m really pleased to have got things done so quickly having spoken to the Board and the Gaffer.
“Fortunately, it’s been quite easy going – I made it clear that I wanted to stay at Cardiff City and the Gaffer told me he wanted me. I’m absolutely delighted to be here for the next three years.
“Our form towards the end of last year showed what we’re capable of as a team and hopefully we can take that straight into the new season.”
Neil Warnock added: “You’ve got to take your hat off to Sean. He could have moved on having been made quite a lucrative offer, but he told me, ‘I don’t want to Gaffer – I think there’s something special happening here.’
“He thinks we could really do something next season and that shows great commitment to the Club and where we are right now.”
Executive Director & CEO Ken Choo commented: “It was very important that we secured Sean’s future this summer.
“He’s been an excellent captain for us so far and we’re looking forward to having him for another three years.
“We had no hesitation in extending Sean’s time with us and we see him as a key part of our future.”
