Cardiff manager Neil Warnock wants to help the club find his successor after agreeing to remain with the Bluebirds for another season.

Warnock will see out the final year of his contract in the Sky Bet Championship following Cardiff's relegation from the Premier League.

The 70-year-old Yorkshireman met chairman Mehmet Dalman and chief executive Ken Choo for talks on Monday when it was agreed that he would continue in a job he has held since October 2016.

"When you get relegated the manager's position is usually in doubt," Warnock said.

"But Vincent (Tan, Cardiff owner) made it clear last week that he wanted me to stay, and how can you not want to when you see how the fans have been with me over the last couple of years?

"It rankles a little bit that we got relegated. I just feel it's not the time to change with the squad I've got and the players I want to bring in.

"But we've got to obviously look for a replacement for me now.

"I would like to think we could do well and I can help them in that selection."

Warnock says the decision to ensure stability and keep him at the club provides Cardiff with their best chance of returning to the Premier League.

"When I signed for Cardiff I had spoken to Derby and thought I'd got the job," Warnock told BBC Radio Wales.

"I told them I only wanted a year, I'll get you promotion and then help you find a manager.

"I remember the owner Mel Morris saying to me 'we thought you were the best candidate but we want more stability at the club'.

"He said they wanted someone who was going to stay two or three years and build the club forward. They took Nigel Pearson who they sacked three months later!

"So my point is you don't change things for the sake of it."

Warnock has won a record eight promotions in his 40-year managerial career, the last one coming at Cardiff in the 2017-18 campaign.

And he admits the target of winning a ninth promotion next season is "driving me on again".

"I thought it would be miracle when I came to the club to get my eighth promotion," Warnock said.

"There's going to be a lot of good clubs in the Championship next season, and none of the teams that went down last year are going back up.

"I feel we've got more chance of attaining success by keeping things how they are and adding to squad with two or three players.

"We have to stick together and I think that's the advantage we've got over (relegated pair) Fulham and Huddersfield.

"My lads know what the Championship is about, we've got players who can roll their sleeves up at any level."
