Fulham manager Mark Hughes has hinted that Mexican full-back Carlos Salcido could leave this summer as his family have returned home.
The Mexico international joined the Cottagers last summer from Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven and has made a good impression in his first Premier League season.
However, Hughes has warned Salcido could leave Craven Cottage after becoming unhappy with life in London following the incident at his house.
Hughes insists the club want to retain Salcido's services, although he acknowledges things have been made harder by events off the field.
"His family came over initially, but he had a robbery at his house," revealed Hughes.
"That was a bit upsetting for his family. They couldn't settle after that point [and moved back to Mexico].
"Carlos' situation is that his family has not been able to settle as of yet and he obviously has that to deal with.
"We are hopeful that the situation can be resolved and there can be a positive conclusion from our point of view in terms of Carlos being able to stay.
"If the situation is still prevalent it may be that Carlos feels he needs to look at his options back home because he needs to be with his family.
"We understand that situation, it is difficult, but obviously we have to protect our own position and he fully understands that.
"There is a lot of dialogue going on in terms of how we can resolve this but at the moment it is a little bit up in the air."
