Armand has attracted widespread interest this season with a series of cultured displays on the left side of the defence.
The 22-year-old, who recently admitted he was flattered by reported interest from Manchester City, has also been linked to the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.
Gripond also poured scorn on rumours that France international goalkeeper Mickael Landreau would depart for Arsenal or Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.
"I do not forecast that there will be any comings or goings in January," stated Gripond.
It still appears likely that Nantes will let Armand leave for the right price - although it now appears that he will remain until next season.
