Rotherham are willing to hold out for £200,000 for the midfielder and The Royals have seen their bid for half that value rejected.
Chief Executive Nigel Howe told the official site: "Weeks ago we offered £100,000 and they declined. We've not removed the offer, and they've not come back since either.
"They asked for £200,000, but we've got no more to spend although we appreciate Rotherham's position. It looks unlikely because we're so far apart."
This has seen them been linked to other players, including Caballero and Smith.
Meanwhile, one player who is unlikely to leave the Madejski Stadium is Andy Hughes, who had reportedly attracted the interest of Premiership giants Newcastle United.
Hughes told the Reading official site: "I think that's a load of rubbish mate, it's made up! It's not even worth talking about, it's a load of rubbish!"
