Dave Jones is to remain as Cardiff manager following a series of meetings between himself and the club's key figures.

Jones had been linked with a move away from the Cardiff City Stadium and his future was further thrown into jeopardy following City's play-off final defeat to Blackpool on Saturday.

"During these meetings Dave reiterated his ongoing commitment to the club, and the club to him," a statement on the club's official website read.

Jones himself made it clear after the final whistle he was keen to stay on and guide the club to promotion next term and, with both parties showing their commitment to each other during positive talks over the past two days, Jones will now set about bolstering his ranks to go again.

"Dave also presented proposals to club representatives which were accepted by all. As a result dealings will now take place with the aim of producing a squad that will see Cardiff City Football Club again challenge for promotion next season," the statement continued.

"It was further agreed that these dealings will be set in motion against the backdrop of our future success being built on sustainable and strong business foundation.

"Key stakeholders of the club will now look to implement the proposals in the coming weeks."
