‘Many, many people in Hong Kong and China have become proud Bluenoses and I know they are very excited about the prospect of Blues coming over here.

‘We are ambitious and have big plans regarding commercial and cultural link-ups between Birmingham and Hong Kong and China – as highlighted by the recent announcement of a five-year deal with Chinese kit manufacturers Xtep.
