Carlos Salcido looks set to join Mexican side Tigres on a year’s loan.

A statement from Tigres says that Fulham have agreed to allow Salcido to travel to Monterrey to conclude personal negotiations with the club. The loan deal will include an option to make the transfer permanent.

Salcido has endured a disappointing year with Fulham since signing from PSV Eindhoven for £1.6m last August. He struggled to adapt to the pace of the Premier League and was dropped midway through the season, before regaining his place towards the end of the campaign. The Mexican international made 26 appearances for the club, but his departure from Craven Cottage was expected after his family left for their homeland following a break-in at his London home. The recent arrival of John Arne Riise has increased the likelihood of Salcido leaving.
