Bongani Zungu was expected to pen a loan deal for until the end of the season with an option to buy outright for a reported £5m (R81m) .
The Bafana Bafana midfielder landed in Spain on Thursday ahead of his imminent transfer to La Liga side Mallorca from Lique 1 side Amiens.
The Spanish media captured images of Zungu arriving there.
However, the deal fell through after Amiens failed to secure the services of Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur.
