Fulham boss Mark Hughes is keen to bring Barcelona midfielder Alex Hleb back to London.
The Mirror says rather than tap into the £25million war chest made available to him by owner Mohamed Al Fayed, Hughes is eyeing a number of loan deals and sees 29-year-old Hleb as a suitable candidate.
The Belarus midfielder is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp but was outstanding for Arsenal before he quit the club for Spain in 2008.

Aston Villa, Sunderland, West Ham and Spurs have all expressed an interest in him
