Argentine striker Fabian Espindola is likely to be on his way from Real Salt Lake.

RSL GM Garth Lagerway told reporters during a conference call Friday afternoon that the club has decided not to pick up a contract option for the 23-year-old Argentine, who scored five goals in 12 appearances for RSL last season.

Real has had Espindola on loan from LDU Quito for the past year-and-a-half but opted not to buy his contract and make him a permanent player.

"We haven't ruled out bringing back Fabian," said Lagerway, who noted that RSL could try to extend the terms of the old loan deal. "But nothing's imminent right now."
