Cardiff City are holding talks with Ciaron Brown over a new contract, sources have exclusively told Football League World.
The central defender is out of contract this summer with the club holding a one-year option to extend his deal, but FLW understands that the Bluebirds are looking to tie him down to a long-term contract at the club.
The 23-year-old seemed like he was heading for the exit door just a matter of months ago with Brown joining Livingston on a season-long loan deal last July – his third spell with the Scottish side.
However with Cardiff’s form deteriorating at the start of the year FLW revealed the club’s plans to bring the defender back to South Wales and reintegrate him into the first team fold.
Since coming back Brown has certainly made a big impression.
In the last month he has played in each of Cardiff’s last six matches with the Northern Ireland international being named in Mick McCarthy’s starting XI in each of the last five fixtures.
Excluding the 5-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Easter Monday the Bluebirds had conceded just three times in the five matches previous showing that he’s now regarded as a key part of McCarthy’s plans.
