Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan is said to be 'extremely upset' with the club's manager Malky Mackay, after he revealed plans to make three new signings in January, without putting plans to the board first.
Tan, who claims he spent a total of £50 million on deals over the Summer, warned Mackay on Monday night he'll receive 'not a single penny' for transfer window deals.
Chief executive Simon Lim released a statement that outlined Tan's disappointment.
He said: "Tan Sri Vincent Tan was extremely upset to read quotes from the manager concerning the possibility of new recruits, before he had been informed whether funds would be made available.
"He believes that doing so unfairly raises supporter expectations, placing unnecessary pressure on the club."
