Briand left Lyon to have a medical at Monaco prior to signing a contract, but the deal fell through before he could undergo it.
A statement from Lyon read: "Olympique Lyonnais took note of the return to training this morning of Jimmy Briand and regrets that the player has not reached agreement with AS Monaco as the two clubs had agreed the terms of a loan until the end of the season.”
Turkish club Besiktas were also understood to be keen on the winger.
