Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan looking to concentrate more on the bluebirds…

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has reportedly sold half of his stake in MLS club Los Angeles FC – and plans to sell off the other half as well.

The shares already sold, purported to be worth around $70m, are said to have been bought by a group of individuals within the club, who are already planning to buy the rest of his stake, too.

Tan owned 20 percent of LAFC but his shareholding is now said to have been reduced to just 10 percent, according to the LA Times  

It all points to a streamlining of Tan’s footballing portfolio, helping him to narrow his focus on Cardiff City and their bid to get back into the Premier League.

Sources close to Tan say that is very much his priority.

News of the American scaleback comes after impeccable sources at Cardiff City told WalesOnline that reports Tan was planning a takeover of Spanish club Malaga were wide of the mark . 

We reported back in the summer that Tan was planning to sell all of his shares in the LA FC and while it has not as yet been made official, this alleged sale appears to be the first big step towards that. 

As well as Cardiff and LA FC, Tan currently owns Belgian First Division side KV Kortrijk and Bosnian club FK Sarajevo.

Bluebirds fans will be hoping much of the money Tan is getting from the sale will be ploughed into Cardiff, as Neil Harris seeks to strengthen the squad further in the summer transfer window.

The sale, according to the American outlet, values the club, which formed only in 2018, at more than $700m, making it the most valuable franchise in MLS history.

It looks as though Tan is slowly exiting surely the most glamorous board in world football with minority owners including Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber, actor Will Ferrell, Magic Johnson, former football star Mia Hamm and her husband, former baseball player Nomar Garciaparra.

LA FC’s first game of the 2020 season saw them take on David Beckham’s newly-formed MLS franchise Inter Miami on Sunday, game the Los Angeles side won 1-0 thanks to a goal from former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela.

Cardiff City will be without midfielder Lee Tomlin when they welcome Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Tuesday.

Tomlin missed their defeat by Stoke City on Saturday due to a knee injury that he picked up in training and is now out for at least six weeks.

Nottingham Forest have fitness concerns over top scorer Lewis Grabban and midfielders Samba Sow and Sammy Ameobi.

Grabban and Sow have knee injuries and Ameobi has a hip problem, while striker Nuna Da Costa (groin) is out.

Match facts

Cardiff City have won nine of their previous 10 league matches against Nottingham Forest, drawing the other in December 2015.
Nottingham Forest have won one of their past 11 away league visits to Cardiff (W1 D3 L7), a 2-0 victory in November 2010.
Despite drawing five of their previous six home matches (W1), Cardiff have lost fewer home games than any other Championship side on home soil this season (W8 D7 L1), a 0-1 defeat by Bristol City in November.
In the 13 Championship games this season when Nottingham Forest have had the larger share of possession, they have managed just one victory (7.7% – D5 L7), compared to winning 14 of the other 21 matches in which the Reds have surrendered the higher share to their opponents (66.7% – D6 L1).
Nottingham Forest have lost on seven on their previous 10 trips to Welsh sides in all competitions (W1 D2), though following their victory at Swansea in September, the Reds are looking to win back-to-back games in Wales for the first time since November 2010 (1-0 v Swansea, 2-0 v Cardiff).

Things To Do In Cardiff Banner

Things To Do In Cardiff, a new Tourist & Attraction website and Business Advertising Directory, has recently gone live after being a few months in the making.

The business advertising directory franchise taken on by Cardiff, Newport and Caerphilly based digital marketing agency MA Consultancy, come about after a chance meeting earlier this year with Things To Do In Ltd Franchisor Paul Nash, at the London Business Show.

Paul Nash, a former doorman, American limo entrepreneur and Zoo Keeper, started the business in Clacton, Essex after find out that most of his zoo visitors had found out about his business by searching “Things To Do In Clacton”, on the internet.

After finding out for himself what the customers were finding, when using the search phrase, Paul discovered that besides, trip advisor and another site, there was no Things To Do In Clacton site, so a business was born.

After getting 250 businesses on the site in Clacton and expanding throughout Essex, Paul decided to franchise the business.

There are now over 25 “Things To Do In” websites live with many of these taken by franchisees and many more still available including many available in the lucrative Greater London area.

There are plans for the “Things To Do In” Business Advertising Directory websites to be in every town and city in the country, as well as every town and city in Wales as soon as possible after the flag ship Things To Do In Cardiff site has been launched.

The secret behind the success of the website is it’s strong keyword and the SEO services that go on in the background which means that for just £30 per month and a small £50 set up fee, they can get your business on to page 1 of google, which will drive traffic to your business and your website.

They are currently looking for Things To Do In franchisees all around Wales and advertisers on Things To Do In Cardiff and even newer Things To Do In Penarth.

Franchises are £9,995 and the advertising starts from £30 per month for a micro-site and £50 set up fee, or from just £25 for a banner ad.
