“Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that Paul Trollope’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect,” a Bluebirds statement said.

“We’d like to thank Paul for his efforts and wish him the very best of luck for the future. Assistant coach Lennie Lawrence and performance director Ryland Morgans have also left the club with our best wishes.

“An announcement regarding Paul’s successor will be made in due course.”

Another former Blade, Steve Bruce, is 12/1 with Sky Bet. Warnock kept Rotherham United in the Championship last season.
