Doncaster are still hopeful of bringing Leeds midfielder Neil Kilkenny to the Keepmoat Stadium.
Despite having an initial bid turned down by the Elland Road outfit, Rovers maintain their interest in the Leeds star.
Whites boss Simon Grayson insists Kilkenny is still very much a part of his plans next season and says he has no intention of selling his key players.
Rovers, though, believe every player has a price and Kilkenny is still top of their list.
Doncaster assistant manager Richard O'Kelly told The Star: "He is a player we have been interested in for 18 months and a player who we will continue to be interested in.
"We made a discreet enquiry and were told he is still part of their plans so we left it at that - but everybody has got a price.
"I first saw him as a 16-year-old playing for Birmingham City against Aston Villa in a reserve match and he ran the show - he was absolutely magnificent.
"He had a lot of confidence and he is a player we have kept tabs on ever since.
"We were interested in him when he left Birmingham but he chose Leeds."
