Cardiff City forward Anthony Pilkington is to stay with the club until at least 2019 after signing a two-year contract extension.

The 28-year-old Irishman was a £1m signing from Norwich in August 2014 and has since scored 13 league goals for the Bluebirds.

Cardiff announced the news shortly before their Championship encounter against Derby County kicked off.

Pilkington was absent, having suffered a thigh injury earlier in September.

Pilkington played for Huddersfield before joining Norwich in July 2011.
