Cardiff's Juan Cala celebrates before discovering that his goal was disallowed for offside
Cardiff striker Kenwyne Jones has had an appeal against a fine imposed on him by his former club Stoke rejected by the Potters, PA Sport understands.
Jones was fined the equivalent of two weeks' wages in January after he sent Stoke boss Mark Hughes a text message on the night before the Barclays Premier League match against Liverpool to say he was unavailable for selection.
It is understood Jones went back to Stoke last week to argue the level of his fine was unjust, but Potters chairman Peter Coates has since concluded that not to be the case and that the 29-year-old player can now either pay up or take the matter to the Premier League.
Midfielder Stephen Ireland has signed a three-year contract to remain at Stoke.
Ireland has revived his career at the Britannia Stadium after joining the Potters on a loan deal from Aston Villa at the start of the season.
