Negotiations over wages have halted progress in Doncaster's attempts to lure former West Brom defender Gabrial Tamas to the club.
Reports in Romania had reported that the defender had signed a six-month deal at Keepmoat, said to be worth £200,000. This would equate to around £8,000 a week for Tamas, a sum Doncaster cannot afford at this time.
The 30-year-old met with club officials last week but a deal could not be finalised, however Doncaster are confident of agreeing terms due to several outgoings at the club.
James Harper, David Syers, Billy Paynter and Martin Woods have all recently left, freeing up extra funds for manager Paul Dickov to use in the January transfer window.
Dickov revealed last week that although a striker would remain his priority, he was also in the market for a versatile defender.
Tamas has previously enjoyed a three year spell at West Brom, making 45 appearances for the Baggies. He has since been without a club, following a short spell at FC Cluj, during which his contract was terminated after just one week due to off field issues.
