Cardiff have been given the green light by shareholders to sell land in an effort to save the troubled club. The Championship club owe money to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs and are due back in the High Court on March 10 to face a winding-up order.

The sale of land at the Cardiff City Stadium, which will be used for a new sports complex, will provide a boost to Cardiff's financial worries.

A club spokesman said: "The resolution was passed at an extraordinary general meeting.

"The club has the approval of the shareholders to go ahead with the sale of some land."
