Ashley Noffke will not be joining Worcestershire as their overseas player in 2008.
Chief executive Mark Newton confirmed the county were no longer in the running for the Queensland paceman.
"Noffke was of real interest to us," said Newton.
"He is one of a number of players that we have made enquiries about but we believe we are no longer in the running for him."
Newton also ruled out a return to New Road for Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq, who had a spell with the county last season but recently reversed his decision to retire from international cricket.
"We haven't spoken to Abdul but now he is back in the Pakistan fold we assume he is under the same restrictions as their other internationals," added Newton.
