Thaksin Shinawatra is no longer welcome at Manchester City

Manchester City

have finally severed ties with disgraced former owner Thaksin Shinawatra.

Thaksin made a £50m profit when he sold City to current owner Sheikh Mansour of the Abu Dahbi Royal Family last summer.

And although the former prime minister of Thailand was initially handed the title of Honorary President at the City of Manchester Stadium, it is understood that he has now been stripped of the title.

Thaksin was informed by conference call last week that he was no longer welcome at City. His name has been removed from the matchday programme and from the wall in the boardroom at the club.

City's former owner is essentially a fugitive at the moment after refusing to return to Thailand to answer corruption charges at the end of last year.

He has also been divorced by his wife since he sold City to ease his own financial problems last year.
