Yeung promises money for McLeish

24 August 2009 12:53
Yeung's investment company Grandtop International Holdings recently announced that it is to make an "all-cash offer", said to be £81.5million, for the club. The company, which already holds a 29.9 per cent stake, failed with a takeover bid of the St Andrews club in 2007, but Yeung is confident of reaching a deal this year, and has reportedly promised McLeish around £5million to further bolster his Premier League side. "The club was relegated (in the 2007/08 season). I bought it this year because it bounced back. It's as simple as that," he said at a press conference in Hong Kong. "We will strengthen the team first. We will find capable players. "When all the arrangements are in place, when strong players arrive, our results will improve."
