"Olympique Lyonnais confirms that the tri-party negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais have chose to put an end to these negotiations at 20:00 [CET] on Saturday night", a club statement read.

France Football Association president Noel Le Graet had suggested the move was nearly completed - according to reports in France - before Lyon's announcement.

But on Saturday, Lyon released a statement saying the negotiations between all three parties had ended, and that Fekir would remain at the club, subject to further transfer developments.

The Lyon forward was said to be close to finalising his move to Anfield on Thursday night with an announcement due on Friday.

Fekir had his medical at Clairefontaine on Friday afternoon but the transfer stalled after Liverpool sought a second opinion on the midfielder's right knee.

"The information on the transfer of Nabil Fekir is false".

What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal
Researchers found that more than half - 54 percent - of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death and one of three leading causes that are on the rise, the CDC said .

How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV
The Bill Mott-trained Hofburg finished 1 3/4 lengths behind Gronkowski , holding third by a neck over Vino Rosso. Seattle Slew's Triple Crown - four years after that of Secretariat , was swiftly followed by Affirmed's in 1978.

His form was nowhere near the level he reached in the 2016/17 season - he only scored two goals and laid on eight assists in the league in 30 appearances.

And on Saturday evening Lyon announced the deal was off, claiming their captain will remain at the club next season.

Sorry Liverpool fans, Fekir isn't going anywhere... for now, at least.

ESPN's Liverpool correspondent Glenn Price discusses why Nabil Fekir would be the player to finally replace Philippe Coutinho.

Although Fekir's playing style can be compared to Southampton's Sofiane Boufal, the Frenchman is way more accurate and efficient when it comes to his dribbling and overall ball distribution in the final third.

The end result looks certain to be Fekir moving to Liverpool, but Aulas is clearly keen to make sure he controls the timing of that announcement.
