Swedish stars' wage demands means deal stalls

Birmingham City's attempts to extend Seb Larsson's contract have stumbled after the player reportedly broke off from talks. The Swede has 12 months left on his deal at St Andrews and manager Alex McLeish is keen to keep hold of the 24-year-old. But Larsson is believed to have stepped away from negotiations after demanding £30,000-a-week wages to commit to a long-term deal. Larsson made a loan move from Arsenal permanent in 2007, but his three-year stay at the Midlands club now looks in doubt. McLeish said in the Daily Mirror: "Whether Seb is going to continue in this vein I don't know."
