Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan confident of Langston deal with Sam Hammam

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan says he’s confident he can come to an agreement with Sam Hammam and Langston over the club’s debts.

After inviting the Lebanese former chairman to today’s promotion party against Bolton Wanderers, Tan said: “We are still talking and trying to find a solution and I’m sure we will find an amicable solution that is good for Cardiff City,” Tan said.

“We have some issues with Sam Hammam over this Langston thing. I’ve met him and we are talking and I’ve invited him to come. Sam Hammam is here as my guest and as my friend.”

Controversial businessman Hammam brought an end to his six-year tenure as City chairman in October 2006 after agreeing to sell his majority share holding.

“Sam Hamman has a lot of knowledge of football clubs. He can even help me and advise me on football.”

There have previously been suggestions that Hammam could be offered an honorary life presidency at the club as part of a deal with Langston.

Tan today hinted Hammam could be offered a role at a club which will play in the Premier League for the first time next season.

“Sam Hamman has a lot of knowledge of football clubs. He brought Wimbledon up from nothing to the Premier League,” Tan added.
