Joe Bennett has decided to stay at Cardiff City and not accept an offer from Championship rivals Fulham.

"He was offered a very good contract. It speaks well for the lad and the club where we are, when you can turn that down," said manager Neil Warnock.

Warnock said he is delighted the player has opted to stay and felt the club's progress contributed to his decision.


"Its been difficult for the lad, he's had all sorts thrown at him over the last few days," said Warnock.

"Once they met his release clause it was up to him to say yes or no really.

"Joe has been playing well, he can see what we are doing.

"His wife is happy down here and she is eight months pregnant, I think.
