All quiet at St Andrew's

All quiet at St Andrew's

After a few days with little to report on the takeover bid by Carson Yeung, it now appears that he is ready to announce he has enough funds for the rumoured £50m bid for Birmingham City.

News of Yeung's bid is still being viewed with some suspicion by fans; it is one thing to raise the funds to buy the club, but another to be able to maintain the club in a fit state to take it forward in the Premier League.

David Gold has long maintained that he would only sell Birmingham City if it were in the best interests of the club, but after a 14 year tenure at St Andrew's, maybe they feel they are not likely to get a better offer.

A report in the Birmingham Mail conjectures that the most likely outcome for the present board will be a clean break, despite sporadic rumours of David Gold assuming some sort of emeritus position.

Transfer news is similarly quiet; the O'Connor deal seems to have stalled following extensive reporting of an imminent deal in the Scottish press over the weekend.

Links with other players are mere speculation until more concrete information is available, but a deal for Mido now seems to be very remote, with interest in Koumas now coming from Aston Villa.

With the transfer market bouyant at the moment, particularly for home-grown players, it is anticipated that whoever is in charge at St Andrew's over the next few weeks will have to dig deep in their pockets for suitable players.

Need to get cracking Blues. Them lot down the road look to be slow as well but I bet there is a lot going on behind the scenes there. We cannot afford to be stuck in limbo.

if this potential take over has put transfer activity on hold then it needs to be sorted quick for the sake of your premiership future
