St Andrew's in BirminghamBirmingham City and a number of people have been charged with alleged breaches of EFL rules

Birmingham City as a club and a “number of individuals” have been charged by the English Football League with alleged rule-breaking as a result of a takeover bid investigation.

The EFL said there was “sufficient evidence” to bring charges of misconduct.

These allegations allege that a number of individuals were permitted to act as “relevant persons” without EFL approval.

There are also charges that the transfer of control of the club took place without the necessary authorisation.

The multiple cases will be referred to an independent Disciplinary Committee and the EFL has said it will not make any further comments.

In response, Birmingham released a statementexternal link saying they “acknowledge” the EFL’s decision and subsequent charges and confirmed there would be no further comment.

The Championship Club has been owned by China-based Birmingham Sports Holdings Limited since 2016.

They bought the club as the Trillion Trophy Asia to become their second consecutive possession from Asia after Carson Yeung’s tenure.

There was an attempt to acquire ownership of the club from Paul Richardson and Maxi Lopez, which ended in December, and separate negotiations with unnamed potential investors, but the EFL has identified people involved in the case were not confirmed.

The Blues are 18th in the Championship, just seven points clear of the relegation zone, with 14 games left this season.
