Ex-Norwich City defender, Malky McKay has dropped his legal claims against Cardiff City and the club's owner, Vincent Tan.
The timing of this announcement is very interesting, what with City needing to sort out a new manager and McKay not being available to take another job until the legal battle was finalised.
McKay released the following statement through his lawyers:
'Today I have reached a settlement agreement dropping all claims I have made against Cardiff City Football Club.
"I did not want to be in litigation and believe that it is in the best interests of all parties to have a clean break and move on."
'I have enjoyed my time at Cardiff City and I am most grateful to the board of Cardiff City and Vincent Tan for giving me the opportunity.
'The club's owner Mr Vincent Tan invested heavily in the club and supported our decisions in our push for promotion to the Premier League. Without him this would not have been possible.
'My thanks to all those at the club and the fans who have supported me during my time in Wales. If I have caused any offence to anyone during this time, especially to Vincent Tan, then I apologise without reservation.
'I wish everyone associated with Cardiff City FC all the best for the future and thank them for their support. I will not be commenting further on this matter.'
After months of legal wrangling it seems that Malky has decided that he needs to move on - and fast. His apology to Vincent Tan in particular is unusual to say the least.
Anyway, the bottom line is that he is now available. He is thought to be on the radar of the Norwich City board, according to rumour and twitter but you should take that with a pinch of salt.
A management duo of McKay and Adams anyone?
