Cardiff City will hold a board meeting on Monday to discuss their decision to suspend their recruitment director.

Iain Moody has been placed on gardeninig leave by the Welsh club, and there was speculation that manager Malky Mackay, who has known Moody for a while, was considering his position.

However, the board have denied asking the Scot to resign from the club, and it appears Mackay will concede to losing Moody.

Replacing Moody is 23-year-old Alisher Apsalyamov, who is believed to have no previous football experience, and was apparently painting the walls of the Cardiff City stadium earlier this summer.

Bluebirds chairman, Tim Hartley said: ''Fans will be concerned with the recent behind-the-scenes developments at Cardiff City which appear to put into question the future of our manager, Malky Mackay.

''Supporters are surprised that someone who appears to have little hands-on experience has been put in charge of transfers at the football club.

"Fans want Malky Mackay, who has done a fantastic job as manager taking the club to the Premier League, to remain at Cardiff City.

The board have come under plenty of criticism from the supporters. It was owner Vincent Tan’s decision to change the club's traditional blue home kit to red, and to change the club's badge, in an effort to help promote the club in Asia.

There were also rumours between the board and the players over end-of-season bonuses during the summer, although Mackay was backed by Tan and given £30m to spend on transfers.
