Cardiff striker Ross McCormack has confirmed that he wants to stay at the club next season even if the Bluebirds fail to win promotion to the Premier League.
The 22-year-old has scored 23 times in all competitions this campaign causing rumours to speculate whether he may move on to better things in the summer.
The goal tally, albeit 10 coming from the penalty spot, is made all the more impressive when you consider that the former Rangers youngster has been asked to play as a winger on more than one occasion this term.
Despite two thumping defeats, 6-0 at Preston and 3-0 at home to Ipswich, in their last three games the Bluebirds are still in contention for promotion to the top flight via the play-offs.
Dave Jones' men need just a point to secure their top-six berth but whatever division Cardiff find themselves in next season the Scotland international insists he is going nowhere unless the club want to offload him.
"We still have a real chance of making it into the Premier League, but if we don't make it this time I'd love to help Cardiff again next season," he told the South Wales Echo.
"I've settled with my girlfriend in Cardiff and I'm enjoying my football more than ever.
"I want to play in the Premier League - and I want to do that with the Bluebirds. I will only leave if the chairman Peter Ridsdale wants to sell me.
"If he decides to do that because it's right for the club's finances then I'll move on. But this is the happiest time of my career and moving is not on my mind.
"You get speculation when you're doing well, but I ignore all that. Dave Jones and Peter Ridsdale have been good for me and I want to be good for Cardiff City."
