Former Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy has signed a two-year contract extension with Cardiff City.

McCarthy was appointed in January, initially on a deal to replace Neil Harris until the end of the season.

Cardiff are unbeaten in ten matches under McCarthy, winning seven of those games.

The Bluebirds are two points off the play-off places and McCarthy, 62, has been rewarded with the new contract.

His long-term assitant Terry Connor has also signed a deal with the Championship club.

Before taking over at Cardiff, McCarthy had a brief and unsuccessful spell with Cypriot club APOEL Nicosia.

McCarthy said: “TC and I have enjoyed every minute of the time we've had at this great club so far and we're delighted to be staying. I'd like to thank Vincent for offering us the opportunity to do that.

“The players have responded to us over these past 10 games in the manner we hoped they would, and it's a pleasure working with them each day in training.

“Credit to them for the efforts they've put in so far and the results they've earned. They're enjoying it and deservedly so. I'm very much looking forward to the future.”

Cardiff's clash with Huddersfield on Friday will be McCarthy's 1,000th game as a manager.
