Vincent Tan: Cardiff owner has struck a deal over the club's Langston debt

The debt to Swiss-based financial company Langston, of whom former City chief Sam Hammam is a representative, was taken out in 2004 and was believed to be worth £24million.

Cardiff owner Vincent Tan had stated he was confident of reaching an agreement after holding talks with Hammam, and a deal has now been struck, which reportedly involves the payment of a one-off lump sum and further smaller payments.

Tan said: "I am grateful and indebted to Sam Hammam, Michael Isaac and Michael Filiou for their part in this resolution, which brings to a close a lengthy period of uncertainty.

"This settlement allows us to look to a new era of financial stability, which should be celebrated by all connected to Cardiff City.

"I am delighted, primarily for the supporters of this great club that we can put this matter firmly behind us and plan for our future with confidence."

Hammam will become an honorary life president of the club, while his representative Filiou has taken a place on the board.

"This resolution will rightly be regarded as a proud and historic occasion for all associated with Cardiff City Football Club," said Hammam.

Tan claimed last week that once an agreement with Langston was secured he would look to convert the substantial amount he is owed by the club into equity in order to ensure Cardiff, whose most recent financial figures showed they were £83million in debt, become debt free.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
