Striker Michael Chopra has reaffirmed his commitment to Cardiff following speculation linking him with a move.

Chopra has been the subject of much transfer talk of late, with Newcastle linked with a shock swoop to bring the striker back to St James' Park. But the 26-year-old, who found the net for the first time in three months during Tuesday night's FA Cup draw at Bristol City, insists he is going nowhere and is fully focused on firing the goals needed to help the Bluebirds secure promotion to the Premier League.

"I see myself as a Cardiff City player with two-and-a-half years on my contract. I will continue working my socks off for Cardiff," he told the club`s official website.

But while Chopra is staying in South Wales, midfielder Solomon Taiwo is set to join League One Colchester on loan.

Boss Dave Jones added: "Sol is going out on loan to Colchester. He needs to play matches. If we don`t get players in, he will have to stay, but I don`t want him to stay and just sit on the bench."
