Birmingham City have been hit with a temporary transfer embargo due to late filing of their accounts.
The Championship have confirmed that the Football League made the decision following the Midlands club's failure to meet the March 1 deadline of submission of financial statements.
A statement on the club's official website said: "The draft financial statements are prepared and it is understood that these will be finalised and published by the end of April.
"This short period of delay in submission, and the resulting transfer embargo, does not affect the business of the football club at this present time. Having captured the signatures of several more players in the last couple of weeks, the club is satisfied with the strength and size of the playing squad, which has been sufficiently reinforced to assist with our end of season push."
Birmingham has become the second club today to be put under a temporary transfer embargo, with Coventry City suffering the same fate.
