Birmingham boss McLeish hopes Yeung comes good with transfer cash

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish hopes for a late rush of signings in the coming days.

Hong Kong billionaire Carson Yeung is apparently close to completing his takeover of the club, and his promise of £5million to spend before next week's transfer deadline could come in very handy on this showing - although McLeish is dubious the cash will arrive in time.

"I've heard that as well! I don't know if it's possible or feasible to do it before you take ownership, but I would gladly accept it," he said after their Carling Cup victory over Southampton.

"The window is closing but we also know we have to balance it in some way because some players might find themselves squad players because of the new players coming in."
