Lyon have claimed that negotiations with Liverpool for the transfer of midfielder Nabil Fekir have ended, with the France international staying at the club.
Fekir was expected to join Jurgen Klopp's side before Les Bleus left for the World Cup, but Lyon have now halted talks and called off the deal.
A Lyon statement read: "Transfer negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and Olympique Lyonnais have decided to put an end to this negotiation tonight at 8pm.
"Although Liverpool have been the priority of a possible transfer for Nabil...Olympique Lyonnais is delighted to be able to count on the presence of our captain, who is a leading player for the 2018/19 season when the club will play in the Champions League."
In reply to Lyon's tweet confirming the move had broken down, club president Jean-Michel Aulas wrote: "We love you Nabil, come on France, come on Lyon!"
