“We would like to thank Steve for his efforts during his time at Cardiff City, stabilizing the first team last season and helping develop our squad in line with the club’s philosophy this summer.”

Cardiff confirmed that Mark Hudson will take over as agent, assisted by Tom Ramasut, ahead of their next game against Burnley on October 1.

Morison replaced Mick McCarthy on a temporary basis last October and was subsequently given a permanent contract by Cardiff owner Vincent Tan.

But the Bluebirds dropped to a final 18th place last season after winning only one of their last six games of the season.
