New Birmingham boss Lee Clark knows the situation at troubled St Andrews.
The Toon legend was unveiled to the media at St Andrew's on Wednesday following his appointment as Chris Hughton's successor on Tuesday, penning a 12-month rolling contract.
Lee Clark: "It's just another challenge as a manager
"(It's) very positive news about the embargo, so that's ongoing at this moment in time.
"But I'm 100% clear, I know what the situation is.
"Nothing's been hidden from me, I know the situation, I know the market I'm working in with the players.
"But what I do know is the group I've already got here is a fantastic group of players - experience combined with quality youngsters. I'm happy with that.
"There will be additions and we'll act accordingly on that, but I do know the market I'm in. I'm cool with it, I'm relaxed about it and we go from there.
"I think I've been told the truth, I think I've been kept up to date with everything since I first had dialogue with people at Birmingham City."
