Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has announced the club will revert to their traditional blue home kit with immediate effect.

The Welsh club posted the following statement on their website in which Tan paraphrases former American president John F. Kennedy:

To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, 'Let us never compromise out of fear. But let us never fear to compromise.'

My wish is to unite and make the club successful and in order to achieve this I fully support the board's decision to implement the following changes:

Starting from Saturday, January 10 2015 and until the end of this season, our home kit shall be blue. Our away kit shall be red. I would like to thank the Football League for their approval to facilitate my request.

For the 2015-16 season, Cardiff's home kit colour shall be blue. Our away kit colour shall be red.

The challenge ahead for us is enormous and I truly believe we will overcome these obstacles as a united club. I believe with divine blessings, Cardiff City Football Club will achieve great success.

– Cardiff owner Vincent Tan.
