Cardiff City defender Bruno Ecuele Manga has signed a new contract, the club’s official website has confirmed.
Bruno Manga has put pen to paper on a new two year contract extension which will see him stay at the Cardiff City Stadium until the summer of 2019.
The former Cardiff City Player of the Year in 2014/15 was told that he had no future at the club by Neil Warnock when he took over.
Warnock deemed him surplus to requirements and said he was available for a transfer in the January window.
However, Manga was recalled to the starting line-up due to injuries and he formed a formidable partnership with Sol Bamba at the back, helping the Bluebirds rise up the Championship table and secure a mid-table finish.
After a string of impressive performances, Warnock performed a u-turn and wanted the Gabon international to stay.
Warnock has cited the fact that Manga has proven how much he wants to play for Cardiff as a major factor in giving him a new deal.
Now, the future of Bruno Manga has been confirmed as he commits his future to the Welsh outfit.
Cardiff have been very busy in the summer transfer window already.
They have tied up deals for Kadeem Harris and Bruno Manga as well as signing Danny Ward and Lee Camp (both Rotherham), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Rochdale), Neil Etheridge (Walsall) and Callum Paterson (Hearts).
