Birmingham struggling to make contact with Yeung

Birmingham City are struggling to make contact with prospective new owner Carson Yeung, it has been revealed.

The Guardian says since the last meeting after the 3-2 win over Wigan 19 days ago, when manager Steve Bruce was told his future was secure, little has been heard from Yeung and attempts to contact him have met with no reply.

That has fuelled suspicion that he is struggling to raise the capital and prompted Gold to admit on Tuesday that "I have gone from 90% sure that the sale would go through to about 75%".
