Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan says that the club's hierarchy will not change the team's name to Cardiff Dragons.

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has said that the club's hierarchy will not change the team's name to Cardiff Dragons.

Having changed the Welsh side's colours from blue to red in the summer, Cardiff's Malaysian owners were reportedly considering a change of name, but Tan has told supporters that this will not happen.

In a statement on the club's official website, Tan said: "I can assure all supporters that we will not be changing our name from Cardiff City Football Club, a club I am very proud to be a part of.

"Our name is our identity and remains at our core. I would not want any of our supporters to be concerned that this change would be made, hoping that this personal commitment from myself removes any fears.

"I believe the colour change is positive and will bring good tidings to Cardiff City Football Club. At this point of time, no decision has been made to change the club crest for the next season."

Cardiff travel to Middlesbrough in the Championship on Saturday.
