Blues will receive £23million to spend in the Summer

News broke yesterday of the extent of Trillion Trophy Asia’s investment plans. After the initial £12million made available to Gianfranco Zola to spend in the January Transfer window, a further loan package of up to £26m was agreed in December to spend this Summer.



Paul Suen’s commitment to the cause has been revealed in the parent company’s latest set of accounts. The accounts also show the loss of £930,000 which was down to the new players brought in and also the appointment of Gianfranco Zola.

The dismissal of Rowett is also outlined in a statement saying:

“The management believes the pedigree, philosophy and ambition of the new members fits with what the Club would like to achieve as it moves in a new direction.



“With the introduction of new players, the management is optimistic that the performance of the Club can be improved on and off the field.”

The figures also show Blues received more than £300,000 from the Premier League for fulfilling conditions of the Elite Player Performance Plan, an initiative designed to promote the production of home grown players.

Bearing in mind potential add-ons for the players Zola has brought in, we could be seeing at least £20million made available. Last month we heard the board were fully behind Zola and were not looking to replace him, despite only winning 2 games since his appointment, these plans could be the reason.

We have seen the potential in his signings and the fee’s of Nsue, Jutkiewicz, Kieta and Frei have only amounted to less than £5million. So, with a much higher transfer budget to help build on his team and playing style in the Summer, we could see a much stronger and exciting lineup come August.

    On the face of it things look good. Assuming 4/5 quality players are brought in during the summer. It would not now be unreasonable to expect the new line up to be totally fresh and different to that of this season. Even a new goalkeeper. My thoughts turn to what players may stay-and I can only think of Davis,Jukey and Cogley.

    This is brilliant news. Hope the figures are right. With the talent we have and the addition of more we should do well next season. We need to start winning a few games to take us forward.

    Villa spent more than that on 2 players and they have no chance of promotion.

      Absolute rubbish. The funding is for running the club. There’s no figure publicly announced for players.

    lending money bothers me for new players. If we dont get promoted or sold on then we then have a rising debt like Leeds a number of years ago. My first signing would be chris wood 🙂

    Peter.even if we get half it will be ok.Nobody really expects £23m. We all take some things with a pinch of salt but hey-we are no longer paupers of yesteryear.

    Also,it gives a new dimension to how players look at Blues. No longer can ordinary ones come to us and enjoy a comfort zone football where survival is the only goal.

    I get where the article is coming from but if you actually read what the money is for you will clearly see it is a ” loan” and interestingly not an investment . It is for the running of the club, that means wages , staff day to to day costs.Yes some may be spent on players! However it is NOT all 23 million for new players.
    Very concerned about the “loan” – where did it come from and if it is leveraged against the club than we may well be back in a very precarious position should we not get promoted. Sounds very similar to Mr Yeung days doesn’t it !
