Sullivan: Birmingham takeover chances 10 per cent

Birmingham City co-owner David Sullivan has echoed the sentiments of chairman David Gold in virtually writing off the chances of Carson Yeung's takeover going ahead.

Yeung was given until Friday to prove he could raise the £35million necessary by the December 20 deadline set by Sullivan but failed to provide any assurances.

Sullivan said: "I would say the chances of the takeover going through now are no more than 10%.

"I have thought for many weeks now that it has been very unlikely to happen. I would like to pull the plug now because I am fed up with it.

"It is hard to contact Mr Yeung. He does not return calls or emails. He is very elusive."
