Birmingham boss Bruce demands news from Yeung

Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce wants prospective owner Carson Yeung to come clean over his future.

Yeung watched City gain a thrilling 3-2 victory over Wigan at St Andrews thanks to two goals from former Juventus striker Olivier Kapo.

Bruce wants Yeung to outline which direction he wants City to take if his buy-out goes through before the end of the year.

There is also a question mark hanging over Bruce's future after Yeung declined to rubber stamp the new contract he had agreed with the current board in May.

Bruce said: "For the sake of the club we have to find out from the new prospective owners what they want to do and clarify the situation.

"David Sullivan has been here 14 years and made all the big decisions. They have not always been popular but one thing about him is he has never told me a lie.

"He has always been straight. Mr Sullivan and Mr Gold have sold the club in the hope someone will take it to the next level.

"We need to find out what Mr Yeung's plans are and, if that is with or without me, I'll bide by that decision."

City fans chanted "There's only one Steve Bruce" while the players ran across the pitch to celebrate with him at the final whistle.
