Of course you can contact us, you have our address.

Langston Corporation last night hit back at Peter Ridsdale's claims he had no way of contacting them and that the club's only point of contact was Sam Hammam. The statement, issued through solicitors Hextalls, said: "The club has the address of Langston in Switzerland; a current representative of the club has met the Swiss representative of Langston.

"It follows that it is not true that Sam Hammam was or is the sole point of contact that the club had with Langston."

In a statement, City said: "The club stands by its statement as made on Wednesday.

"It also notes that at no point does Langston deny the fact the board is in possession of signed documents confirming that a balance of pounds 15m is to be paid to Langston by December 31, 2016, with interest to accrue on the balance from March 1, 2007."

The most recent accounts filed by Mr Hammam's firm Rudgwick Limited - which he used as a holding company for Cardiff City - mirror the club's accounts. Both sets of accounts filed with Companies House declare that the pounds 24m debt to Langston was written down to pounds 15m "in exchange for entitlement to future income up to a maximum of pounds 9m arising from the club's new stadium naming rights".
