After falling out of the Premier League in 2014 after only a single season spell in the top flight, Cardiff City fans have endured a series of largely uninspiring mid-table finishes.
The end of the current campaign marked Cardiff’s lowest finish since their demotion from the top flight, and many in south Wales will be disappointed with 13th spot.
Things however, could have been far more chilling, as the Bluebirds flirted with relegation for swathes of the season.
Outspoken manager, Neil Warnock, took the helm at the Cardiff City Stadium in October, and successful steered the side away from the dreaded drop.
The former Sheffield United boss will harbour high aspirations this summer, and a place in the top six will be a minimum expectation for the ambitious manager.
Having taken both QPR and Sheffield United into the Premier League, Warnock has an impressive track record, and Cardiff fans will be hoping he can make it a hat-trick of promotions next summer.
A number of new faces will need to be added to the Bluebirds’ squad, and this Welsh winger wouldn’t cost the club a penny.
Southampton’s, Lloyd Isgrove, spent the current campaign in Yorkshire with Barnsley, and made 27 appearances for the Tykes over the course of the year.
Having failed to break into the Saints first team since his debut in 2012, Isgrove’s contract is up this summer, and it is highly unlikely he will be approached by his boyhood club with the offer of a new deal.
A one time Welsh international, a move to south Wales will appeal to the wide man, and Warnock should look to add the Barnsley loanee to his squad.
At the age of 24, Isgrove finally secured a consistent spell of first team football for the first time this season, and will look to push on to ensure he fulfills the potential he showed as a youngster.
Born in Yeovil, Isgrove was eligible to represent Wales through family history, and the decision to do so could prove an inspiring one this summer.
Cardiff City fans adore their Welsh stars, and this may weigh heavy on the mind of Warnock if he ponders a move for the player this summer.
Young, improving, a free agent and Welsh, Isgrove would make a fantastic addition to the Cardiff City squad, and could line up on the Bluebirds’ wing by August.
