Carson Yeung hasn't had contact with Birmingham City for the past week, it has been revealed.
But no one from Brum has heard from Yeung for more than a week despite the fact manager Steve Bruce has left to join Wigan.
That has sparked fears Yeung is set to call off the deal - after having an appeal rejected to extend the December 20 completion deadline as he tries to raise the extra £35m he needs.
The Chinese billionaire recently blocked the board from offering Bruce a new deal, suggesting he was taking a close interest in club affairs.
And Yeung's advisers insist he is still fully committed to the purchase of the Midlands outfit.
