Biography (as of 5 Jan 2016)

Carson Yeung is a name synonymous with Birmingham City’s recent troubles. The former hairdresser swept to power in October 2009, having bought out the previous board with a bid valuing the club at over £80million. This had followed an initial purchase of 29.9% and abortive takeover of the club in 2007.

Yeung was arrested on five counts of knowing or having reason to believe he had dealt with the proceeds of an indictable offence – otherwise known as money laundering – in June 2011 and was sentenced to six years in prison having been convicted of the offence in March 2014.

He is currently on bail while waiting for his appeal to the Court of Final Appeal to be heard and lives with his wife Wang Man-li and his young children Camilla and Alexander in his multi-million dollar home on the Peak in Hong Kong.

OP in Hong Kong – Day 1 – Arrival.

With the season now petering out to a lukewarm conclusion and all dreams of playoffs and promotion now completely dead, I think the time has come for us to be able to take our focus away from matters on the pitch and look at what is happening behind the scenes.

Why is the takeover taking so long?

One question that I have been asked a lot of late is “what if?” What if Carson overturns his appeal? What if Blues pull off the impossible dream and gets promoted? What if Trillion Trophy Asia decide they don’t want to fund Birmingham City any more?

One Response to “Carson Yeung”

  • JeffHallsClock says:

    Re Due Diligence this can be a lengthy process typically would take about a month…..but with our track record I dare say the auditors will want to be doubly sure.
    Once due diligence is completed there often follows a period of negotiation to adjust for any unexpected findings from both sides!
    So in summary I still wouldn’t expect any news for at least another month or more – we are now in a silent period as neither party are at liberty to discuss pending results as anny discussion could potentially affect competitive offers or business standing in the stock exchange. Whoever it is at the moment are only POTENTIAL suitors
    Hope this helps.
