Socceroo Massimo Luongo appears unlikely to trade League One for the Championship next season, with Swindon Town standing firm in the face of interest from Rotherham.
The 21-year-old midfielder was the subject of a 600,000-pound bid from the Millers, who were promoted to English football's second tier via the play-offs in May.
Luongo has two years remaining on his contract at the County Ground, while Swindon would reportedly owe his former club Tottenham Hotspur a percentage of any funds received due to a sell-on clause in the 400,000-pound deal that brought him to the Robins in 2013.
"He's not going, and I don't know if we would sell him," Swindon manager Mark Cooper told BBC Sport.
"I don't think there's any pressure.
"With all due respect to Rotherham, I don't think Mass would go there.
“It was a fantastic offer but I think he's worth more than that."
After making his full international debut off the bench against Ecuador in March, Luongo was included in Australia's squad for the World Cup, but didn't get on the field during any of the Socceroos' three games in Brazil.
