Liverpool youngster Dani Pacheco looks poised to join Spanish outfit Rayo Vallecano on a season-long loan.
Sources close to the Primera Liga outfit claim a deal is almost done and that the promising forward will return to his homeland on a deal that will run until June 2012.
It is claimed that the 20-year-old will arrive in Madrid for a medical on Monday and to complete the relevant paperwork.
A number of clubs are reported to have contacted Liverpool this summer regarding a possible transfer, with permanent and short-term agreements discussed.
Pacheco, though, has had the final say in where he ends up, with it important for him to get games.
He believes he will get the opportunities he craves at Rayo Vallecano and considers them to be the best choice for his career.
The youngster revealed back in July that he was prepared to leave Liverpool in order to find regular football.
He hinted that a return to Spain would be his preferred choice, and it appears as though he may be about to get his wish.
Pacheco said at the time: "Above all, I want to play and if I have to leave to do that then there will be no problem.
"Some day I would like to return home. If it happens, it happens."
Pacheco took in a loan spell at Norwich last season, scoring two goals in six appearances as the Canaries secured promotion out of the Championship.
