Birmingham blogger Dan Ivery and the Mirror’s James Nursey have both confirmed that the club has been placed under a transfer embargo by the EFL.

Ivery revealed on his blog early this afternoon that “multiple sources” had told him the club have been banned from making transfers, and Nursey then tweeted not long afterwards that his own sources confirmed the story:

Fans on Twitter were quick to react to the news:


If Ivery’s reports is correct, it seems the club had been given a “soft” embargo by the EFL initially, and that the club had been given a chance to redress their finances. However, it seems that as no action was taken, the Football League have now decided to take decisive action.

In his follow up tweet Nursey suggests that the club now will hope that the embargo is lifted quickly “which can happen” if they comply with Financial Fair Play rules. This is a fast-moving story so things may change very quickly in the next few hours. Everyone is waiting for a response from either the club or the EFL for confirmation.
