Mexican club Monterrey have had a bid rejected for Fulham defender Carlos Salcido.
Mexico international Salcido, 31, joined Fulham from PSV last summer in a £1.6 million deal as a replacement for Paul Konchesky, but he has struggled to adapt to England and recently revealed that he had been close to joining Chivas in January.
"In January, I had been very near to returning to Chivas," Salcido said. "Everyone knows that I support Chivas but in this moment the only thing that I want is to be with my family.
"I am not looking for a team. I did that in January but it couldn't happen. In this moment I don't know about anything."
Monterrey have now made a bid to take Salcido back to his homeland but Fulham have turned down the offer, with Mark Hughes eager to keep him at Craven Cottage.
A Monterrey statement read: "We inform you that we have received a response from Fulham Football Club of England, declining our offer to sign Carlos Salcido."
