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.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
