Blues have been in talks with Caddis' parent club Swindon following the right-back's impressive loan stint at St Andrew's this season.

However, those negotiations have collapsed and Clark believes any deal is now dead.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "The only way it can be resurrected - which I don't think Swindon will do - is if they make him available as a free transfer.

"It's a blow for me and a huge blow for Paul, who has loved it at the football club. He really settled with his young family and I have been delighted with his performances.

"We are all disappointed and I'm more disappointed for the lad as I know how much he was enjoying it with us and how he was looking forward to joining us permanently.

"But we are where we are. I have been as transparent as I can be with the supporters, I have told them the position, and we have to move on."

Caddis, who has a year remaining on his contract at Swindon, made his debut for Birmingham in September following a deal that took Adam Rooney in the opposite direction.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
