Leicester City manager Craig Levein has been scared off by the price tags on Celtic's Ulrik Laursen and Dundee pair Steve Lovell and Scott Robertson.
Celtic appear willing to let Ulrik Laursen leave
Celtic appear willing to let Laursen leave despite the defender failing to become a first-team regular.
Dundee are desperate for cash following relegation, and striker Lovell and midfielder Robertson are much admired.
But Levein told BBC Sport: "We made approaches but sometimes clubs have different valuations of players."
Levein had already raided Celtic this summer, signing goalkeeper Rab Douglas and capturing Guinea international Momo Sylla.
But the former Hearts head coach was unable to agree a deal with Dundee for Englishman Lovell, who has scored 35 goals in 98 appearances for the Taysiders since arriving from Portsmouth.
Robertson has already caught the eye after breaking into the Dundee side this season.
Laursen has made just 57 appearances in three years for Celtic following his £1.5m move from Hibernian.
