Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish has admitted that talks over a new contract with midfielder Sebastian Larsson have stalled in recent weeks.
The 25-year-old Sweden international's current deal runs out at the end of the season, with Larsson having so far failed to reach an agreement over a fresh contract.
McLeish told Press Association Sport: "There is nothing doing at the moment with Seb's contract.
"We were hopeful we could get something done, but it is up to Seb. He is now in a good position for himself if he wants to become a Bosman. But we will keep trying to entice him.
"I think he had a great game on Saturday. His delivery from the wide area was great.
"Seb doesn't have to beat a man. He can get the ball around an opponent with his terrific curl on the ball.
"We are just desperate for someone to get on the end of those quality crosses."
