Birmingham legend Francis in talks about joining Yeung era

Birmingham City legend Trevor Francis has revealed he'd welcome a role in Carsen Yeung's new era.

The former England star said that a meeting was being set-up to discuss an ambassador's role.

"I went to the Sunderland game and was made very welcome in the boardroom," he told the Birmingham Mail. "I met all the new owners and it was very nice.

"I was really pleased to be greeted like I was and they said I was welcome at every home match as a guest of theirs. They want me to be part of the family.

"Again, I was pleased to hear that because since I came up here in 1969 as a 15-year-old boy, Birmingham City has always been my team - and always will be.

"The new owners want to take it forward, they want to try and involve me at the football club, so of course that interests me greatly.

"These are busy times for them at the moment, and I fully understand that. And I have got my own media work.

"So we're talking over the phone to try and organise a meeting."
