After helping Cardiff City from the pits of the Sky Bet Championship table and transforming them into a top-half team, Neil Warnock has always insisted he would be looking for another promotion during the 2017/18 campaign.
Shortly after agreeing a one-year extension on his contract in the Welsh capital, Warnock was promised the funds to build a squad capable of challenging for promotion next season.
Warnock has perhaps completed his most exciting signing of the summer today, with Lee Tomlin arriving in Cardiff on a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old was in exceptional form for Bristol City last season, scoring six goals and adding five assists from his 38 Championship appearances.
Tomlin has spoken about his desire to get back to the Premier League with Cardiff, which will be music to the ears of the club’s supporters.
Following the announcement of Tomlin’s arrival, here is how Cardiff fans reacted…
Welcome to the Bluebirds Lee, I have a feeling you're going to enjoy your stay here! #CityAsOne
