Derek McInnes has emerged as a candidate for the vacant manager position in Cardiff City.

The ambitious 50-year-old coach earned praise for his work at Aberdeen, where he won the Scottish League Cup, but has been eager for another chance at management in England.

He had a previous spell at Bristol City where he guided them from relegation and has been considered by players like West Bromwich Albion and Barnsley.
