Lyon have ended negotiations with Liverpool over the transfer of captain Nabil Fekir, the Ligue 1 club announced on Saturday.

However, it would appear Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is likely to sell Fekir after the World Cup.

"Olympique Lyonnais is delighted to be able to count on the presence of their captain in 2018-2019", Lyon said in a statement.

The latest development in the on-off transfer saga came after FFF chief Noel Le Graet had earlier said: "Nabil Fekir is in the process of being transferred".

The Reds have been heavily linked with a move to sign Lyon attacker Fekir in the summer transfer window.

Nevertheless, they have already made some impressive additions in time for next season, with Naby Keita and Fabinho joining the Reds from Leipzig and Monaco respectively.

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped.

However a statement from Les Gones on Friday, suggesting that media reports claiming a deal had been reached were false, cast doubt on a positive outcome for the Merseysiders.
