    I suspect we've put that to one side to use it for the Danny Ings transfer at the end of the season.

    Luckily we'll get about another £120million at the end of the season. It really is madness that we seem unable to afford even the smallest transfer fees.

    Pretty sure it was a perm now. That's what was advertised on our OS and Sampdoria anyway.

    Was a permanent transfer. Believe the cash for that goes towards the £18m for Ings in the summer. (People forget we haven't paid for that yet).

    He has already left... it is not a loan he has gone permanently already.

    The majority goes to a wage bill that is among the highest in european football.

    My sources tell me Adams is very keen to come to Saints but we can only complete the deal if Austin goes, as that way we save a few quid by re-using Charlie's old "CA" training kit. If anyone else leaves instead, we have to start the scouting process from scratch, to find someone else with the same initials.

    As far as I understand, Birmingham are still under a transfer embargo so I really cannot see them selling anyone near the first team regardless of the fee.

    We'd have been better off if we had a transfer embargo for the last 3 years or so then!

    That's just rubbish. We will have enough to pay for Ings in the summer, our budget for the summer should not be 10m

    The latest info I could find is we are the 8th highest in the premier and I'm sure I read somewhere it's around 60% of turn over so still wouldn't add up , Money disappears somewhere if you ask me this whole need to sell before we can buy is a load of guff especially seeing as we were told the Gao sale was to take us to the next level !

    Despite there being a number of committees on the go, apparently the transfer committee is not one I'm allowed to join. Disappointing. :-/

    Off the pitch, the club has to be run like any other business, and currently they feel that the squad is too large and the wage bill is too high, so players need to be moved on before bringing in more. I dont think its literally that we cannot afford another penny, they are just trying to balance the books.

    Yep or £18m and Gabbiadini went for around £8-10m.

    Saying the money for him has to go towards Ings is just ridiculous IMO, we aren't just buying Ings in the summer or I'd hope not so other money will be available to buy him by then so why can't money produced from a player we've sold this month be used now?

    I don't think anyone is against us trying to balance our books but to do it while we are in a relegation fight is a MASSIVE gamble . Sometimes you need to speculate to accumulate.

    And it's not like we will be doing a bank transfer for the full amount on the day he signs .

    You can't force a team to sell a player for less than they value them at ffs ! (Can you ?)

    This is the full text:

    Birmingham City’s decision to reject several bids for the striker Che Adams this week could lead to a second charge of committing an “aggravated breach” of the EFL’s profit and sustainability rules, which would trigger a second points deduction in as many seasons.

    The Sky Bet Championship club are already facing being docked up to 15 points this season as a sanction for missing the EFL’s spending limits by £7 million over the three seasons from 2015 to 2018, with an independent disciplinary commission due to rule on the case this month. This has led to fears that the team, who are 12th in the table, 16 points off the bottom three, could be dragged into a relegation battle. Ironically, such concerns influenced their reasoning in rejecting offers from Burnley and Southampton for Adams, who has scored 15 league goals this season.

    This may have been a serious miscalculation, however, as the club club need to raise considerable funds and/or make significant savings by the end of the season in order to comply with the EFL’s rules, with a failure to do so raising the prospect of a double punishment.

    If it is proved that they rejected formal bids for Adams during the relevant accounting period — there have been reports of four offers of up to £12 million for the 22-year-old — the EFL may deem it to be an aggravated breach for deliberately ignoring the profit and sustainability rules, which could trigger an additional nine-point deduction, which would be applied next season.

    Birmingham are contesting an aggravated breach charge for their signing last summer of the former Denmark Under-21 international Kristian Pedersen despite being under a transfer embargo.

    You mean what Cortese did and got roundly critiscised by many on this board despite the success it brought and the vastly increased value in the club

    Trouble is the gamble has to pay off after recent debacles on transfers can anyone trust this lot to get it right? Best wait for Hasenhuttl to decide on he he wants id trust him over the rest of them

    Two goals so far for Che, another few million on his price tag. Harlee Dean, once of this parish, has Birmingham's 3rd.

    I look forward to our attacking recruitment in the summer, survival permitting...

    In our Premiership relegation season under the excrable Lowe, we made a £4m+ profit in that January window. History repeating?

    If they have breached the rules then I think us and burnley should also launch a legal challenge

    With up and coming players like Adams, who is 22, the longer you wait the more expensive they become. He's going to cost a lot more in the summer than he would have done in January, especially as our reported interest in him will have raised his profile more. The same applies to Maehle, who is 21.I guess if the club had no money in January and is hoping that player sales in the summer will bring enough in to buy them, we may still get them. But, we're going to have to sell our better players in order to raise that sort of money. As for the club's massive Premier League income, none of that seems to be released for buying players any more.

    I see Che Adams to Southampton stands at #8 in charts of Transfer Whispers with Sky Sports.
    Not a dead deal yet then. Could be resurrected in the summer.

    He wasn't for sale. Only a stupid bid would get accepted then.

    In the summer he will leave then, he knows that and the club know that. He won't be cheap but it'll be more negotiable.

    I’m not even sure about the stupid bid as Birmingham have sanctions in place from the fa meaning they cannot replace him - not 100% sure but there seemed to be a lot of confusion around what the sanctions actually meant in reality

    That's why Birmingham and Genk didn't sell, they will get more in the summer and get to keep the player for the rest of the season, it's a no brainer. If you read the Maehle interview he wanted to come but believes Genk are after more money.

    Brum deducted 9pts today.

    They are now 5pts clear of the relegation zone. I'd imagine they will be fine, but have lost their last 4 matches.

    Next 3 games are WBA / Leeds / Sheff Utd..

    If they had used their brain and sold him... they wouldn't be deducted 9 points!
