Rod Fanni remains on the outer at Olympique Marseille.
The defender travelled to England a fortnight ago for a Leicester City medical and to sign terms. But the deal fell through over Fanni's personal demands.
Last week, Liverpool also made contact with Fanni, but like Leicester, quickly pulled out of negotiations due to his terms.
La Provence says Fanni has returned to OM, but has not been seen training with the first team.
Instead, it's understood he's been banished to the reserves, the CFA2 team.
