Malky Mackay will reportedly not resign as Cardiff City manager despite one of his closest aides being suspended by the club and replaced by a 23-year-old.

Malky Mackay has reportedly decided not to resign as Cardiff City manager despite the club suspending one of his closest aides.

News emerged this morning that head of recruitment Iain Moody has been suspended by Cardiff owner Vincent Tan and replaced by 23-year-old Kazakhstani Alisher Apsalyamov, a friend of Tan's son who was on work experience at the club during the summer.

According to PA, Mackay is disappointed with the loss of Moody but will be staying on as manager of the Welsh club.

Moody worked with Mackay at Watford before joining the Scotsman in the Welsh capital. He is believed to be one of the key reasons behind the signing of players such as Steven Caulker, Gary Medel, Kevin Theophile-Catherine and Fraizer Campbell.
