Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay is confident keeping winger Peter Whittingham.

Whittingham has been linked with promoted West Ham United.

"I totally believe Peter Whittingham will be a Cardiff City player next season," Mackay told Wales Online.

"He has only just signed a new contract and he has two years left on that, so I don't expect him to be going anywhere.

"We have had no interest in him and, anyway, I'm not in the business of giving away our best players.

"As I have said from the moment I arrived here, I'm about adding to my squad and making it stronger, not making it weaker by selling our important players."
