Swindon Town have rejected a number of bids from Birmingham City for on-loan defender Paul Caddis, according to BBC Wiltshire. 

The Scotland U21 international has been on-loan at St Andrews all season and has been in fine form with the defender keen on a permanent deal to stay at Birmingham. However the doors are now open for a return to Swindon Town following Paulo Di Canio's departure. Caddis and Swindon captain fell out with the passionate Italian and was frozen out of the team- resulting in the summer move to St Andrews. 

With Birmingham highly interested in keeping Caddis, they have made multiple bids all season in an attempt to keep the defender. But because of the Blues's dire financial situation, they would only be able to offer Swindon a deal in monthly instalments from now until the end of the season. 

Swindon are reportedly holding out for a bid of around £275,000 for Caddis, but Birmingham's highest offer so far is £125,000 with the promise of another £125,000 in the coming months. 

Swindon, however are looking for the sum all-in-one go, and it is not known whether Birmingham can provide this because of the lack of funds available to current manager Lee Clark. 

Caddis has another 12 months left on his contract at Swindon Town, and with new manager Kevin MacDonald now at the helm, a return to the County Ground is now a possibility following a promising season at Championship level with Birmingham.
