Cardiff City have stated that manager Neil Warnock is going nowhere despite reports linking him with a switch to managerless Sunderland.

Wales Online address the reports that came out over the weekend in the London and North-East media and have the club rubbishing them.

Warnock was linked it appears firstly by the Express following the resignation of David Moyes earlier in the week but it was a true speculation piece from what I can gather, suggesting that Warnock was the type of manager Sunderland needed following their relegation to the Championship last term, rather than outright suggesting any contact would be made with Cardiff over him – just hinting that his hat isn’t in the ring despite his Championship background.

With Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes the firm favourite at the moment for the role, Wales Online’s choice of words when talking about the ‘Cardiff hierarchy’ does seem more like a shot across the bow of any potential suitors rather than a concern with the report itself.

Citing them as ‘unfazed’ and that he remains ‘committed’ with deal extensions last February for Warnock and his backroom team of Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson, the experienced manager’s aims for the new year are clear from the previous interviews he’s done – as covered – and talks with the board are underway on summer targets and his budgets.

I’m not sure this speculation is anything that people should worry about, but having been referenced online now it will take on a life of it’s own until Sunderland finally make an appointment.
