Birmingham chairman David Gold admits he is less confident about the chances of prospective new owner Carson Yeung taking full control of the midlands club.

Yeung has to raise around another £30million to buy out Gold and co-owner David Sullivan who has given the Hong Kong businessman a December 23 deadline to conclude the deal. He has so far spent £15 million in acquiring a 29.9% stake in Blues four months ago but there has been little sign of any activity since Yeung met manager Steve Bruce and the board just over a fortnight ago.

Gold said: "David Sullivan has said he could not work with these people and we have heard no more. There is a little over a month to go before the deadline for Mr Yeung to produce the funds he needs."
