Manager Neil Warnock has said that his position would be uneffected by any potential sale of Cardiff City but he’s not expecting a change at the top any time soon in any event.

The BBC carry the speculation about Vincent Tan being rumoured to be ready to sell up, although our owner has said whilst he’s open to offers he’s in ‘no rush’ to depart, and Warnock believes Tan will at least wait to see if Cardiff can get back into the top flight first.

‘The owners don’t really matter to me as long as they’re supportive. Mehmet Dalman and Vincent have been supportive from day one so I haven’t got a problem. But if they want to sell it I would imagine the best time would be in the next 18 months. They’ll probably wait and see what happens next year.’

Warnock went on to say that should a sale happen though, given the assurances he’s been given in terms of transfer budget over the summer, he believes any sale would take account of those promises, so his plans wouldn’t be effected.

‘Not at all. He’s probably enjoying it a bit now. The money he’s put into the club he should be able to enjoy it. Nothing surprises me in football. I knew there were talks about it when I came to the club because I spoke to Mehmet about it. But I’d be very surprised if anything happens in the next 12 months because Mehmet’s given me assurances. We’re all singing from the same hymn sheet.’

Warnock also didn’t believe talk of sales would overly concern the fans either.

‘I don’t think fans give a damn. They’ve had enough off-field problems over the years. You don’t realise the factions you get off the field. If a club is unified, it’s so much easier. There’s a lot of bickering in the background of a lot of clubs. Everybody has stepped up a gear the last few months and we know we’ve got to do that next season. Everything has settled down, Vincent and Mehmet have been great, players, results and fans too. Everyone is in a great place at the moment.’
