New Birmingham owner prepared to splash the cash

Carson Yeung is prepared to spend what it takes on the right kind of quality player in January's transfer window, reports the Birmingham Mail. One of his chief aides, Sammy Yu, revealed that the Hong Kong tycoon would back Alex McLeish for a top-notch addition 'no matter how much'.

"But I can always tell you that, if needed, if we find the player and he can definitely contribute to the team, no matter how much, Carson will back [the signing],'" declared Yu.

Speaking on a BRMB/Gold radio phone-in, Yu promised that Blues would go after quality in the New Year.

He said he was formulating a plan of action with McLeish and his chief scout Paul Montgomery, which would also be discussed with Yeung when he flies over from Hong Kong for the media gathering.

"Alex will definitely have money," said Yu. "I have spent two days already with Alex, and we are working on this.

"We try to have this understanding of one another regarding our plan for the rest of the season and Carson is coming and then we will have an in-depth meeting, the three of us.

"We will work out a schedule, Carson will inject money - of course - and how much he will announce at Thursday's press conference. Alex will definitely get good support."
