Blues buyer will meet Bruce

Birmingham City's prospective new owner Carson Yeung will meet with Steve Bruce should the manager wish to discuss his St Andrew's future. Speaking last week, Bruce claimed he expects to be axed if the Hong King businessman completes his takeover of the club. Bruce aired his disquiet after learning that Yeung, who already owns 29 per cent of the club's shares, was cool on a potential new contract for the former Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town boss. "If Steve Bruce wants a meeting with Mr Yeung when we return to the UK, then why not?" said Yeung's representative Sammy Yu. "But for the moment we will stay silent on what has been publicly said over the last few days." Speaking last week, Bruce had said: "I have to say it doesn't look very good (for me) at the moment. "I found out off Mr Sullivan on Friday night that the vibes coming back from the Chinese consortium were negative. I know where I stand, that's for sure. "I've 20 months (on my contract) to run, so I'll just get on with it and see when the new people do eventually take over exactly what plans they've got. "But I don't think at the moment there's any talk of a further contract. There's effectively a block. There we go, I'll accept that."
