"I'm honoured to have represented the club during our historic promotion winning year and very much hope to once again see Cardiff City in the Premier League at the earliest opportunity."

Dalman added: "On behalf of the board of directors and all at Cardiff City I would like to place on record my thanks and appreciation to Simon for his valued contribution over the last 18 months.

"We are pleased to welcome Ken to Cardiff City in the role of general manager, adding a wealth of knowledge and experience as the club moves forward. Ken will be responsible for shaping the business, making us more efficient and getting the best out of our talented staff.

"Ken will also join the newly formed Executive Committee, alongside Ole Gunnar Solskj?r, Tan Sri Vincent Tan's representative and myself. The committee will openly discuss and agree all major decisions in the best interests of Cardiff City, which is a positive step for this club to take."
