McLeish open to Asian arrivals at Birmingham

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is open to bringing Asian players to St Andrews.

The Carsen Yeung regime is keen to boost their profile in the Far East and knows having high-profile Asian players will help.

"I don't mind that. I think if it's a marketing situation with Carson Yeung then we'd have to consider that," said McLeish.

"I don't think there's any problem with bringing in Far East players because they have proved on a world stage that they are very capable footballers - it's about getting the right one."
