Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has revealed to BBC Sport he has no intentions to sell the club but will listen to offers if the price is right.

The 65-year-old bought 30% of the Welsh side back in 2010 and has since increased his share ownership to over 90%. Recent reports have suggested the controversial owner was set to sell the club but, this week, Tan addressed the issues surrounding his position at Cardiff, “For the record, I have no plans to sell any of the clubs but if I am offered the right price, I will certainly consider.

“I have always publicly said that except for my family, all my businesses are for sale at the right price. I do not fall in love with my businesses.”

The Malaysian also owns Belgian Pro League club KV Kortrijk and Bosnian side FK Sarajevo. In addition to football, Tan previously invested in horse racing.

Vincent Tan went on to reveal he has rejected numerous bids for the Championship club.

“I have been approached on numerous occasions by parties wanting to buy CCFC but the prices offered have not been right.

“CCFC is turning around now in the good hands of Neil Warnock, who I think is a great manager, and I believe it stands a good chance of being promoted again to the Premier League in the next season.” The Bluebirds’ owner said.

“I am in no rush to sell CCFC, but if I am offered the right price by the right person who I believe will be able to take the club to a higher level, I will certainly consider selling.

“I have said before that if I leave CCFC, I want to leave it in good hands.”

After a poor start to the campaign, Cardiff are 12th in the second-tier and travel to Queen’s Park Rangers on Saturday.
