FORMER Swindon Town chairman Jeremy Wray is involved in a consortium looking to buy a stake in Birmingham City.

Wray was on the board at the Country Ground for four years and spent the final 18 months of that time as chairman, before being replaced by Sir William Patey in October 2012.

The Birmingham Mail has reported that Wray and his associates from Soccer Management Worldwide Limited are the UK group looking to buy into the St Andrews club, who have suffered financial problems of late and only survived relegation from the Championship on the final day of last season.

Wray, whose most notable act at the County Ground was the appointment of Paolo Di Canio in the summer of 2011, was at St Andrew’s on Thursday as the consortium continue the due diligence process.
