Cardiff have rewarded seven current players with new contracts as they prepare for their first season back in the Premier League.

Joe Ralls, Callum Paterson and captain Sean Morrison have all signed deals which will keep them at the club until 2022.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing has signed a contract until 2021 while Lee Peltier and Matthew Connolly will stay until 2020.

In addition, goalkeeper Brian Murphy has been rewarded with another one-year deal by the Bluebirds.

Boss Neil Warnock told Cardiff City TV: “We’ve worked really hard this week to get a number of the lads’ contracts tied down ahead of the new season.”

Warnock also confirmed that Iceland captain Aron Gunnarsson has verbally committed to extending his stay at the club by for at least another year.

Warnock added: “Aron wanted to repay the club, and [owner] Vincent [Tan], for the support he’s had here over the past seven years.

“He wants to help us try and stay in the Premier League, and I think that’s great.”
