Birmingham City takeover: Andy Street reveals EFL talks with new property lawsuit

Andy Street has taken to social media to express his frustration at the lack of movement in the Birmingham City ownership saga.

The West Midlands mayor has revealed that he has been speaking to the EFL about the current situation in the Blues and insists it is “very clear” that change is needed.

On a day when the EFL announced that they had deducted three points from Blues Championship rivals Wigan Athletic, it appears they have also been speaking to Street about the ongoing takeover at St Andrew’s.

Local businessman Jeremy Dale is currently heading a consortium of investors and is eager to regain control of the club from Hong Kong-based parent company Birmingham Sports Holdings Ltd.

And Street tweeted: “Another very important call with the EFL this afternoon to discuss the current situation at BCFC. It was enlightening to hear your latest thoughts, but it’s very clear that new owners are needed. He is It’s frustrating that we haven’t been able to help make that happen yet.”

It is not the first time that the mayor uses Twitter to make his feelings known. He reacted with disappointment when news broke that the Maxco takeover had fallen through late last year and in October he wrote an open letter to Blues supporters after being accused of keeping silent about the club’s woes. He then revealed that he had written to the EFL in July.
