Boss Could Get £40 Million for players

Boss Could Get £40 Million for players

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish has been told that he will receive cash for the January transfer window and it could be as much as £40 million.

New owner Carson Yeung has pledged to invest up to £40million on the squad, one of the first things he has addressed since taking over control of the club just over a week ago.

Yeung knows that there has to be money invested in the team if he wants to keep Birmingham in the top flight, something that has proved to be his top priority.

Yeung told Sky Sports News: 'I will talk to Alex about his needs first. My first plan is to support the club with 20million to 40million pounds.'

He added: 'I will be supporting the manager. We have an excellent management team.

'Our aim is to work hard to secure our position in the Premier League, not only for this year but for many years to come.

'Birmingham can become as big as possible. We are competitors for Aston Villa.

'In the short term I just care about January. But in the future there will be more money, and longer term we believe there is a major opportunity to build Birmingham's fan base in China and to generate new sources of revenue for the club.

'But for this to happen, our first priority must be to establish Birmingham as a Premier League club.'

You could have £400m, player still won't want to play for you.
