Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has been asked by talkSPORT if he’s going to provide Neil Warnock with a £200m transfer budget this summer following the Bluebirds’ promotion to the Premier League.

Cardiff, managed by Warnock, finished second to Wolves in the Championship this season and have started preparing for their return to the top flight.

But will Warnock have £200m to spend in the transfer window this summer?

Tan was asked by talkSPORT on Thursday morning if he will provide those funds to his manager, and responded: “Hahaha! Neil, when I’m worth £10 billion we can look at that!”

Discussing Cardiff’s promotion, Tan said: “Congratulations to Neil. Neil did a great job. Of course [I’m excited to be back in the Premier League]. Neil and his boys did a great job.”

Following Cardiff’s first promotion to the Premier League in 2013, Tan went crazy in the transfer market, bringing in eight players then a further seven in the winter window.

But Tan will not repeat his mistakes again, with Warnock confirming Cardiff’s approach to transfers this summer will be sensible.

Warnock said: “He’s not going to go like he did last time, he wants to be sensible.

“He wants to do the sensible way, he’s not going to go silly – I know that.

“They run the club, I’m just going to enjoy it. For me, it’s like a bonus year.

“So whatever I’m given I’m going to spend, and whatever wages I’ve got I’ll use them, and we’ll do the best we can.”
