Fiorese was hoping to leave Stade Velodrome during the January transfer window, as he is struggling to get a game under Philippe Troussier.
Fiorese was set to move to Ligue 1 rivals Strasbourg on loan for the rest of the season, but the deal could not be completed before the transfer window slammed shut.
It is believed that the two clubs could not agree on the financial side of the deal, meaning that Fiorese will have to stay put.
Troussier did complete the deal to sign Japan international Koji Nakata, but the 25-year-old will not be able to play for l'OM until the middle of February due to international duty.
