One of Carson Yeung´s top advisors has defended the delay over their takeover bid for Birmingham, insisting: "It is not like we are buying a television set."

The Hong Kong businessman and his associates cannot understand why Birmingham´s co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are being "so negative" about the chances of him completing his buyout of the Premier League club.

But Sammy Yu, the chief operating officer of Grandtop International, the company through which Yeung intends to buy the club, told the South China Morning Post: "We want to complete the takeover in a manner that will be best for everyone involved. After all, it is not like we are buying a television set."
