Birmingham City FC's former owner Carson Yeung will find out if his appeal against a money laundering sentence has been successful today.

A judge in Hong Kong is set to make a decision later.

Yeung was jailed for six years in March last year after being found guilty of five counts of money laundering between 2001 and 2007.

Yeung bought Birmingham City in October 2009 from David Sullivan and David Gold, who are now the co-owners of West Ham.

The 55-year-old was arrested and charged with money laundering two years later.

He resigned as president of City and chairman of the club's parent company, Birmingham International Holdings Ltd (BIHL), in February last year.

Gary Rowett on banishing the blues from the Blues

Gary Rowett, the manager of Birmingham City FC, has spoken to our reporter Steve Clamp about how he's banished the blues from the Blues.

"I'm quite a positive character, the people around me are as well. When I came in, I didn't mention the 8-0 defeat, I didn't mention anything about what I'd done before.

"I said, 'Listen, you'll get judged on what we do going forward, and if you give me everything you've got, I'll take everything else.'

"I want to encourage people to be brave."
