Sam Warburton: 'I want to stay with Cardiff Blues'

British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton says that he is "awaiting" a contract offer from Cardiff Blues.

British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton has said that he wants to stay with Cardiff Blues, but admits that he is still waiting for a contract offer from the Welsh club.

The 25-year-old's current deal expires at the end of the season and many of Europe's top clubs, namely Clermont and Toulon, are said to be monitoring his services.

"I've told Cardiff and the WRU that I want to extend [my contract] and sign here," Warburton told BBC Radio 5Live.

"I'm awaiting an offer. I haven't received anything yet, but that's my preferred option at this moment in time."

Warburton led the Lions to a 2-1 Series win over Australia this summer.
