Despite the two clubs reportedly agreeing a deal, Armand Traoré won't be joining Livorno after he rejected the Stadio Armando Picchi outfit.
The 24-year-old has been out of favour with Harry Redknapp for much of the season, but there have been signs that he could feature more regularly for the first team.
Traoré netted his first goal for QPR against Ipswich Town last week and he seems to be willing to stay and fight for a place at Loftus Road.
Livorno, who face a bitter relegation battle in Serie A, are desperate for reinforcements and had set their sights on Traoré to bolster a struggling defence.
It is unclear whether this means that Traoré will stay at QPR for the long term but it signals time for Livorno to give up on trying to lure him.
Senegal international Traoré represented France at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level but switched to play for Senegal at senior level.
