The Malaysian businessman was quoted by press in his home nation as saying he was ready to listen to offers for the Championship title winners.

However, Tan insists he plans to stay with the Bluebirds for the long-term and has vowed to invest in the squad and the club's facilities.

"God willing, I'd like to be here for the long haul," Tan told BBC World Service. "I'd like to see this club stay in the Premier League and would like to manage it prudently [and] wisely.

"I think we have done that under our charge. I think we have done a much better job than all the previous management.

"We'll continue to manage it well, keep the finance in good shape so they don't get into trouble. We hope the club will be around for a long, long time in the Premier League.

"I've been bitten by the football bug but at the end of the day we have to run this like a business so it can stay successful.

"We cannot run it by simply spending money. If we don't manage it prudently then we'll be in trouble.

"We've seen some of the clubs that have been in trouble, Leeds United and Portsmouth. We don't want to be in that kind of situation.

"We try to keep the debts very, very low and if possible debt free. And make sure that we can stay in the Premier League for a long time."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
