Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan is pondering a potential name change for the club.

The Bluebirds became the second Welsh side to make it to the Premier League and Malaysian businessman Tan may celebrate that by altering their name.

Tan has already overseen a change of kit from blue to red and added a dragon to the bluebird on the logo. Next could be a change of name just as Hull City did with their owner Assem Allam for adding Tigers to the title.

"I read a bit about Hull City's name change. They are back in the Premier League and I admire their owner Assem Allam for what he has done," Tan said.

"One thing that I read that I liked is he says there are so many teams with the name city. There is Hull City, Leicester City, Cardiff City, Bristol City - everyone is called City.

"Who doesn't know Cardiff is a city? Who doesn't know Hull is a city?

"I think that his strategy is good but I'm not saying that we are making any similar changes. I don't want nasty e-mails written to me tomorrow but I always say 'never say never.'

"Businesses need to evolve. If we all stayed the same there would be no internet today and we would all be living in caves. But definitely we are not changing anything now."
