Fulham are considering loaning Jozabed Sanchez back to Spain and are in discussions with La Liga side Leganes, according to Sky sources.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has made only one Championship start since joining from Rayo Vallecano in the summer.
He has made six further league appearances off the bench but has not been part of a Whites match-day squad since October.
Jozabed scored nine goals in 27 appearances as Rayo were relegated from La Liga last season.
He was one of 11 new first-team players signed by Fulham before the start of the campaign and manager Slavisa Jokanovic wants to strengthen further in the January window.
Jokanovic wants a forward, a winger, a midfielder and a dominant centre-back this month.
