Cardiff City have opened talks to try and extend Ross McCormack's contract and help persuade the Scotland striker to remain at Ninian Park. The 22-year-old netted 23 goals in his first season with the Bluebirds, having joined City from Motherwell last summer on an initial three-year contract. Chairman Peter Ridsdale told the South Wales Echo: "We are in talks with Ross about extending his deal and we expect to be able to announce news within the next few weeks. "When we signed Ross I agreed to review his contract if he had a good first season in the Championship. Everybody, I'm sure, will accept Ross had a good season. "We are currently negotiating on level of pay and length of contract. Those talks, we hope, will be concluded over the next few weeks."
