Sky Bet Championship club Birmingham City are believed to be facing a transfer embargo due to a breach of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations according to Birmingham Live.
The Blues are believed to be facing the sanction following a period of spending last summer, although official Birmingham City club sources are yet to release a statement on the situation.
A truly baffling day for fans of the Midlands club has seen reports emerge that summer signing Kristian Pedersen is unable to be registered due to the Financial Fair Play breach but some conflicting reports have indicated that Birmingham City are currently chasing further additions to their playing squad.
The current confusion surrounding St Andrews has taken its toll on the club’s fans who have taken to Twitter to give their views on the situation.
So us #BCFC fans pay our money in good faith, we invest in a product, yet the @EFL or @BCFC, can’t offer a statement or an explanation as to the current situation? As well as #FFP being a complete joke of a rule, the lack of respect shown towards the fans is awful.

If the club resolved the Monk vs Middlesbrough row behind closed doors, who's to say they won't resolve this? Might not be straight away but could be done within a week or two? Keep the faith. #BCFC #KRO

Typical Blues though. Half the league apparently in trouble with FFP and only us get publicised as being on a embargo. Swear our club would get done by the EFL for not spending enough #bcfc

Only Birmingham City would try to still make cash signings under a transfer embargo. Elite mentality #bcfc
