Yu says Birmingham willing to spend big on right player

New Birmingham City vice-chairman Sammy Yu says they would be prepared to spend big to sign the right player.

Departed Blues chief David Sullivan admitted he would be surprised if Yeung didn't 'throw money at it' and make up to £15 million available.

And Yu said: "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].

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

"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."
