Birmingham are bracing themselves for another battle with their leading shareholder Carson Yeung who wants to appoint former Liverpool star Steve McManaman and ex-Crystal Palace defender Fan Zhiyi as directors of the midlands club.

Blues have already been frustrated with Yeung who failed to carry out his promise to take full control at St Andrews after buying a 29.9% stake in July.

The club´s managing director Karren Brady, in a letter to shareholders, said: "We are legally obliged to put these resolutions to shareholders, even though we do not support them, nor do we believe the appointments are in the best interests of the company."
