Mitchell Dijks's move to Birmingham City has reportedly broken down after failing to agree personal terms with the Championship club.

Dijks, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Norwich City, has been interesting Birmingham boss Harry Redknapp all summer and a deal of around three million euros had been agreed with Ajax.

However, Birmingham were unable to meet the 24-year-old's wage demands and could now look elsewhere.

Norwich fans were keen for the Canaries to take up an option to sign Dijks upon the conclusion of his loan but sporting director Stuart Webber decided against the deal.

City have since moved on in their pursuit of a left-back, signing James Husband on a three-year deal from Middlesbrough last week for a reported fee of around £1m.
