Swindon Town defender Paul Caddis who spent last season at nPower Championship side Birmingham City won’t be joiuning the club on a permanent basis.

Blues manager Lee Clark has concedded that he will not be able to sign Caddis to a long term contract at Birmingham because the club cannot afford to pay any transfer fee.

Speaking to Sky Sports Clark said, ‘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.

Swindon are rumoured to be wanting around £450,000 for the former captain with several Championship sides interested.

Town boss Kevin MacDonald said that Caddis could remain at Swindon should the club be promoted to the Championship after fans called for MacDonald to keep Caddis at the club, but with Swindon failing to win promotion and with the current slashing of the wage bill it is unlikely the club will keep on one of its bigger earners after already building a team without Caddis last season.
