South Korea forward Seol Ki-Hyeon is in talks over a loan move from Fulham to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal.
Seol has not featured for the Cottagers since October and manager Roy Hodgson has made it clear the player can leave the club if a suitable offer becomes available.
The 30-year-old - who also had spells with Wolves and Reading - is understood to be finalising terms of the deal, which could be made permanent at the end of the campaign.
Hodgson has revitalised Fulham this season, with the west London up into the top half of the table, and having a game in hand following the postponement of their clash against strugglers Blackburn last weekend.
Fulham head to West Ham on Sunday, and defender Aaron Hughes knows there is little room for complacency - as the team are still only six points clear of the bottom three despite their promising form.
"With the game being on a Sunday and with us not having had the match last weekend, it means that we have an extra couple of days to put in a bit more work," Hughes told the club's official website.
"We are both in a little cluster of teams - but if we want to maintain our form and keep going, we need to get a good result out of it."
Hughes added: "If we are going to do well we are going to have to stick to our work ethic, which we have done very well on and play football the way we have been doing."
