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.
