Fulham forward Seol Ki-Hyeon is in talks over a loan move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal.
The South Korean international has dropped down the pecking order at Fulham and has not featured since October.
Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson is understood to be willing to let Seol leave and the former Wolves and Reading man is thought to be in talks with Al-Hilal officials.
Fulham face London rivals West Ham this weekend and defender Aaron Hughes knows they must maintain their form if they are to avoid being involved in a relegation scrap.
"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."
