Hudson signs Cardiff City extension

9 July 2013 10:40

Cardiff City captain Mark Hudson has signed a new two-year deal that will keep him at the Premier League club until 2015.

The 31-year-old, who was already under contract, signed for the Welsh outfit in 2009 and has been a first-team regular ever since.

The central defender made 33 Championship appearances last season as Cardiff won the title and manager Malky Mackay is pleased to resolve Hudson's future.

Mackay told Cardiff's official website: "I'm delighted that Mark has committed his future to Cardiff City Football Club. He is the ultimate professional, an inspirational leader of men and a pleasure to work with on a day-to-day basis.

"It was no surprise to see Mark voted as the supporters club's player of the season earlier this summer, nor that he was voted as part of the PFA's Championship Team of the Year.

"To secure our captain on a longer-term deal this summer was on our list of priorities and I'm sure he will have the same impact for us in the Barclays Premier League as he did in captaining the players to promotion last season."

Hudson was equally as happy to have signed an extension at Cardiff, as the countdown to their first Premier League campaign continues.

"I'm thrilled to have secured my future with Cardiff City and that the thought of my contract is no longer in the back of my mind," Hudson said.

"It's a relief to have done this so early on in the summer so that we can focus purely on the football now in the build-up to the season's kick off."

Cardiff begin life in the Premier League away at West Ham on the first weekend of the season.
