Neil Warnock is expected to continue as Cardiff City manager despite their relegation to the Championship this season.
The Bluebirds finished in 18th place on 34 points and were sent back to the second tier after just a season in the Premier League.
Their campaign did end on a high, though, as they beat Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford on the final day.
Warnock still has one year left on his Cardiff contract and he looks set to target an immediate return to the Premier League.
