Cardiff City defender Kevin McNaughton has vowed to become a Premier League regular after signing a one-year contract extension with the Bluebirds.
The 30-year-old Scot has been with the club since 2006 and is currently their longest-serving player.
He is now relishing the prospect of competing for the Welsh outfit in their first top-flight season since 1961-62.
"There was a decision to be made this summer as I want to play first-team football," he told the club's official website.
"I know that I've a lot of hard work to do to make sure I can achieve that here, but I'm ready for it.
"I didn't want to look back at the end of my career and think that I never gave the Premier League a crack with Cardiff City."
His decision to commit his future Malky Mackay's side also provides a boost for his boss, who has spoken of the importance of experienced players.
"Good, experienced professionals like Kevin are essential for a squad's success and I know this news will please City supporters, as much as it does my staff and I, who know and appreciate what a hard working and dedicated Cardiff City player Kevin is," he told the club's official website.
