Last updated : 05 April 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

The former Reading, Aston Villa and Hibernian wing-back had been on a one month contract with Blues but that expired earlier this week.

I'm still speaking to Ulises," the Blues boss told  The Birmingham Mail.

"He's undecided about whether he goes back to Ecuador. He still harbours ambitions of getting to the World Cup.

"I know it is maybe a long shot for Ecuador in terms of their position in the qualifiers, but the other campaign he is targeting is the Copa America.

"These are issues I am talking to him about."
