McNaughton staying at Cardiff

Cardiff defender Kevin McNaughton has signed a new deal with the Premier League club, Sky sources understand.

The 31-year-old penned a new one-year contract with the Bluebirds last summer and has done enough to impress manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and win a renewal.

The versatile Scotland international was sent out on loan to Bolton in late September, and made 13 starts in the Sky Bet Championship, scoring against Charlton.

However, he returned to the Cardiff City Stadium at the start of 2014 and has made six appearances for Solskjaer's side in the league and FA Cup since then, adding to his two Capital One Cup outings at the start of the campaign.

McNaughton was a second-half substitute in the 3-0 defeat at Swansea on February 8 and has not featured in the four games since then.
