Cardiff manager Neil Warnock furious after Derby match is postponed

Neil Warnock looks set to guide Cardiff back into the Premier League. Cardiff manager Neil Warnock labelled the postponing of his side's clash at Derby as "scandalous" and a "disgrace." The Premier League hopefuls were due to meet the Rams in a lunchtime kick-off at Pride Park, where a win would have taken them back to within three points of Championship leaders Wolves. However, snow meant the match was called off at 8.15 a.m. on Sunday morning. Conditions country-wide improved as the day went on, but Warnock was not happy. Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: "I'm...

Promotion-hungry Cardiff reward Warnock with new deal

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has signed a two-year contract extension.

Warnock, whose side lie second in the Championship, has committed himself to the Bluebirds until the end of the 2019/20 season.

The 69-year-old, who joined the Bluebirds in October 2016, has guided his side to second place in the Sky Bet Championship, four points clear of third-placed Aston Villa.

“After positive talks, I am very pleased that Neil has committed to Cardiff City Football Club for a further two seasons,” owner Vincent Tan told the club’s official website.

“Having supported Neil since his arrival at the club we have been delighted to see results follow on the pitch.

“We are very happy to have agreed this deal, and are looking forward to continuing to bring further success to Cardiff City.

“We were also pleased to strengthen the team in the recent January window, and wish Neil and the entire squad much success in the games ahead.”

Assistant manager Kevin Blackwell and first-team coach Ronnie Jepson have also extended their stay.

EFL summer transfer window to close early

English Football League clubs have voted to bring forward the deadline for completing permanent deals in the summer transfer window, the governing body has announced.

EFL teams will now be unable to sign players from other clubs beyond 5pm on August 9 in a move that is aligned with the decision Premier League clubs opted to take in September.

The 72 sides in the Championship, League One and League Two will still be able to loan players in until the end of August, while they can also offload members of their squad to a club in any league where their window remains open.

“After discussing the options throughout the course of the last few months, I’m pleased that the matter has been determined by clubs ahead of the start of next season,” EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said.

“This new approach will give clubs and managers the stability they crave earlier in the season whilst also providing the flexibility to add to their squads after the traditional deadline until the end of month if required.”

Though the revised deadline day for both will be the same, the window will close for Premier League teams before their domestic season begins, with the EFL stating that the date falls on the Thursday after the opening round of league fixtures for its members.

The EFL also announced clubs had voted for a new policy with regards to the definition of a ‘full-strength team’ following the controversy surrounding Birmingham’s win over Huddersfield in April.

Terriers boss David Wagner made 10 changes for the contest after Huddersfield had already secured a play-off spot, and relegation-threatened Blues secured a 2-0 victory.

Birmingham would survive and finish two points clear of the bottom three while Huddersfield, who were ultimately not punished, secured promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

The new guidance states: “For any League match played on or after the 4th Thursday in March (including season 2017-18), any team sheet for a league game should include at least 10 outfield players who featured on the team sheet for the League match before.”

The EFL also reiterated its stance on artificial pitches and stated any National League team that wins promotion to League Two must agree to use a grass surface.

Should that criteria not be met by the nominated date, the club that finishes 23rd in League Two, and would otherwise by relegated, would retain their place in the division.

Warnock levels accusation at Man City as FA Cup row rumbles on

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has accused Manchester City of making “some horrendous tackles” as the fall-out of their controversial FA Cup tie last month rumbles on.

City manager Pep Guardiola was furious after his side’s 2-0 fourth-round win at Cardiff on January 28 when Leroy Sane was the victim of a dreadful Joe Bennett tackle and suffered ankle ligament damage.

Guardiola made an impassioned plea after the game for referees to protect players better, saying he feared that Cardiff’s approach had put his men at risk of serious injury.

But Warnock is still bristling over those accusations, saying: “I wished they would have put a slow still of Kevin De Bruyne’s tackle and studs on Jazz Richards.

“And the bad tackle of Fernandinho, and then when they played West Brom the following week.

“There were some horrendous tackles and nothing was said about that because there were another eight or nine games.

“We were unlucky on the day because Chelsea and Newcastle was the only other game and that was a damp squib.”

Bennett was only booked for his challenge on Sane, before being sent off in the dying seconds for another poor tackle on City substitute Brahim Diaz.

Warnock was so angry that he forced Bennett to train on his own last weekend when he was suspended for the Sky Bet Championship win at Leeds.

“I got more stick than Joe Bennett,” Warnock said ahead of Cardiff’s league trip to Millwall on Friday night.

“I slaughtered him when I saw it, I said you do a horrific tackle like that and I get three days of hell.

“I don’t think if the Manchester City tackle had come out we would haven’t had any of this (accusations of physicality).

“The same people keep on having a go and you just have to get on with it.

“But we are genuine. We go into tackles but we also play some good football.”

It’s understand a fee and personal terms have all been agreed, so this – and Dortmund’s wish to sign a replacement – are all that’s standing in Arsenal’s way over the club record £57.2m swoop.

9.12am: Newcastle midfielder Rolando Aarons is in talks with Hull over a loan move to the end of the season, according to reports in the North-East

9.05am: If you missed it last night, Man City signed Jack Harrison from NYCFC before loaning him straight out to Middlesbrough. TEAMtalk broke the story exclusively and before anyone else over Monday evening and Tuesday morning.

9.02am: Sky Sports are reporting that Reece Oxford is poised for key talks with David Moyes over his West Ham future today. The Hammers boss is hoping to persuade the young defender to stay, despite a loan return to Borussia Monchengladbach having already been agreed…..

9.01am: A reminder that the transfer window in England shuts at 11pm tonight, while it’s a midnight deadline for those hardy Scots north of the border.

8.50am: Celtic have had a second bid of £375,000 rejected by Motherwell for goalkeeper Trevor Carson. We understand Well are seeking nearer the £500k mark.

8.45am: After allowing Sandro Ramirez to return to Spain on Tuesday night, Everton expect to bolster their defence with the signing of a Man City defender. Safe to say this one is another transfer snub for Newcastle….

8.38am: Here’s today’s Paper Talk – and there’s rumours abound about a big-name departure at Manchester United today…. 😲

8.31am: Arsene Wenger has paid tribute to Olivier Giroud as the striker prepares to seal a move to Chelsea.

8.24am: Leeds goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will complete a move to Sunderland today, while the Whites can expect to seal the signing of West Brom forward Tyler Roberts in a £2.5million deal.

8.20am: Man City could be on the verge of smashing their transfer record twice in the space of 48 hours after Riyad Mahrez handed in a transfer request at Leicester.

8.15am: We have serious doubts about this one…. Championship side Leeds are the surprising new bookies’ favourites to sign Celtic’s prolific striker Moussa Dembele. What a coup that would be!

8.10am: Arsene Wenger has provided an update on Arsenal’s hopes of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the future of Chelsea target Olivier Giroud.

8.05am: A good start to the day for Chelsea after they completed the signing of Brazilian left-back Emerson Palmieri from Roma for a fee believed to be £17.6m on Tuesday night.

‘I came here because it’s a great team with a great history. Today I am realising one of my dreams to pull on the shirt of such a great club.’ #WelcomeEmerson
