Royle was hoping to land Jamaican striker Fuller, but the hit-man opted to stay at St Mary's rather than departing on loan.
"I am watching the striker situation very closely and I would still like to get someone in for the next month," explained Royle.
"Whether it is going to be possible or not, I don't know, but I will be discussing it with the chairman. It will come down to finance in the end.
"Ricardo could have been playing for us but he didn't want to move. He turned down the chance to move elsewhere on loan in favour of staying put."
