Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has turned down two different approaches to buy the club within the last 12 months, according to WalesOnline.
It is understood that the takeover attempts came from interested parties from abroad, but Tan rejected the bids as he reportedly felt they were not in the best interest of the Bluebirds who are sitting ninth in the Championship table.
Tan is now understood to be keen to see Neil Harris lead the South Wales side towards a promotion push during the remainder of the season, with the Malaysian businessman remaining committed to the club he bought back in 2010.
Cardiff have endured a mixed campaign since their relegation from the Premier League last season, but the Bluebirds have embarked on a seven-game unbeaten run in recent weeks which has seen them propel themselves into play-off contention.
It now appears as though Tan is eager to remain in the Welsh capital, but many Cardiff supporters having responded to this latest revelation by questioning the 68-year-old’s dedication to the Bluebirds.

Clearly? Or just greedy and those offers too low … one from a person he dislikes

When the right offer comes in he won’t think twice, he’s a businessman not a fan.

Best owner the club has ever had.

I wonder what Vincent Tan values the club at? I have to be fair, rebranding aside (a shocking error which I’ve never really forgotten or regain trust over) he’s managed the club well. Reducing the debt, and making us more substainable.

Let them buy us. Perhaps they’ll spend a bit of money. 🤬
