Controversial Birmingham City director Peter Pannu is set to be paid almost £2 million in consultancy fees on top of his salary, the club's parent company has revealed.
Birmingham International Holdings Ltd (BIHL) said consultancy payments made to the former St Andrew's acting chairman exceeded an annual cap in three successive years, covering the years ending June 2012, 2013 and 2014.
It handed Pannu's Asia Rays operation a total of more than HK$20 million (more than £1.6 million) during that period.
And BIHL said it also expected to pay out HK$2.8 million (more than £230,000) in the current financial year, ending June 2015.
The details were revealed in a statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange which came six weeks after Pannu's contract with Blues was terminated.
But he remains a club director on the Blues board and an executive director, chief executive and managing director at BIHL.
Pannu, a former Hong Kong policeman, is entitled to a housing allowance and tax reimbursement under a 2009 consultancy agreement.
It was revealed last year that Pannu was among football's highest-paid executives, with a salary of £687,611 in the financial year to June 2012.
He later defended his financial arrangements, saying "high-powered" officials in Hong Kong earned big money.
"Not too much money has been taken away from the club," he told Tom Ross, of Free Radio 80s Birmingham.
"The fans have to understand a few things. In Hong Kong, high-powered executives earn a lot of money.
"Now, when Carson Yeung gave me these contracts the board knew that, unless they paid me this, I was not going to come and work for him. It is a demand and supply thing. I am on executive terms.
"Had BIHL not given me these sort of fees, I wouldn't be in England.
"So it's simple. Now, when my contract expires, unless BIHL pays me the same, I won't work for BIHL."
