​Bassini finalising Birmingham takeover as Eustace eyed for manager role

Laurence Bassini is pushing to complete his takeover of Birmingham City.

The ex-Watford chairman, who is not without controversy, revealed that is was ready to buy out Birmingham's largest shareholder Vong Pech.

After taking that 21.64% stake, he wants to buy the whole club in the next two years for roughly £36.5 million, per the Mirror.

Bassini is hoping to take control of the club in the coming days, and then install John Eustace as their manager.

There is a final deadline for the deal's completion, which is on Friday.

Eustace, who is 42, was in charge at Queens Park Rangers for a period after the departure of Steve McClaren in 2019.
