Cardiff City have expressed delight at Malky Mackay's commitment to the club after confirming there had been no approach from Norwich City for their manager.

Mackay had been mooted as a leading contender to take charge at Carrow Road after Paul Lambert quit the Canaries in order to become Aston Villa boss.

The 40-year-old spent six years at Norwich during his playing career, making over 230 appearances, and admitted to being flattered to be linked with the post.

However, Mackay also pledged his future to Cardiff and chief executive Alan Whiteley is happy the Scot wants to stay with the Championship club.

Worrying time

Whiteley told Cardiff's official website: "We're delighted that the manager has put his own statement out to end the rumour and speculation linking him with Norwich.

"We had not received any official approach from Norwich, despite the rumour and speculation.

"It's always a worrying time, flattering on one level that a higher club in the Premier League comes in for your manager as it means you are doing something right.

"But he had assured me from the start that his future was at Cardiff, that we had started something and that he wanted to see it through."
