Reports from his homeland suggest that Hugo Rodallega could be heading back to Colombia in the January transfer window.

The former Wigan Athletic forward returned from a two-month injury lay-off as a second-half substitute at Carrow Road during Fulham’s win over Norwich City on Boxing Day but the Colombian press suggest that Rodallega might be persuaded to return home by the carrot of first-team football. They make┬áMillionarios the favourites to capture Rodallega either on loan or on a permanent basis, but there appear to be no shortage of potential suitors for the 28 year-old.

Deportivo Cali, Alteltico Junior and Independiente Santa Fe would all be interested in signing Rodallega, who insists he would prefer to continue to ply his trade in Europe. The striker has also not given up hope on earning an international recall.

If people from Deportivo Cali have made an approach, it would be an interesting proposal, but these are not decisions that I will make myself. I cannot tell you if the possibility is near or far. I need to get minutes, matches and goals under my belt and this is what will allow me to return to the national team.

Rodallega has scored six goals in 41 appearances since joining Fulham on a free transfer from Wigan in July 2012, but he has struggled to hold down a starting place since Dimitar Berbatov signed for the Cottagers.
