Birmingham chairman Gold happy with share situation

Birmingham City chairman David Gold believes the club's three major shareholders can work together.

The Gold brothers and David Sullivan have increased their stake in recent weeks while Carson Yeung remains in the frame.

"There are three major shareholders here and that means common sense will prevail whenever a decision has to be made," he said. "If one man held 51 per cent of the club then he alone would have the final say.

"I bought more shares, I feel it sends out a message to the management, the players and the fans that I am here for the long haul. I have strengthened my position only slightly though.

"Does that send a message to Carson Yeung? His shares are not for sale as we speak. If a couple of million shares came on the market then they could be his and who knows?"
