Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan could face questioning by the Premier League over his recent 'illegal' bonus offer.
Reports emerged that Tan offered his players an extra £3.7 million before their game against Tottenham on Sunday, but only if they could avoid relegation.
However these types of bonuses must be decided before the start of the season and not during. The club could potentially face a fine or a points deduction if the Premier League find him guilty after a full investigation.
A spokesman for Vincent Tan has told the Daily Mail: "We didn't realise it was against regulations. Vincent Tan has now rescinded the offer."
The recent revelations have added to what has already been a difficult first season in the Premier League for Tan.
His decisions to change Cardiff's kit colours to red as well as sacking former manager Malky Mackay have put the Malaysian under a lot of scrutiny.
This newest blip has emerged ahead of Cardiff's bottom of the table clash against Fulham this weekend; a game that could potentially decide relegation for either team.
