Birmingham City owner Carson Yeung has appeared in court in Hong Kong accused of money laundering.
Mr Yeung, who took control of the football club in 2009, faces five counts amounting to about £59m.
The 51-year-old attended a pre-trial hearing on Wednesday. It is thought a date will be set for the trial in the next few days.
Police arrested the former hairstylist, who is on bail, in June. He made his fortune investing in Macau in the 90s.
