Luis goodbye?

Luis Jiminez could be on his way back to Italy by the weekend, according to reports tonight.

The Chilean midfielder is set to join Serie A side Parma before the end of the January transfer window according to Italian daily la Repubblica, ending an unhappy spell in London with the Hammers.

Signed on a season-long loan with view to a permanent deal (thought to be set at around 7million) from Inter last summer Jimenez was touted as the player whom Gianfranco Zola would build his team around.

However that plan backfired spectacularly as the 25-year-old showed little of the form that had led him to arrive at one of Europe's biggest clubs.

Having failed to force his way into Gianfranco Zola's plans Jimenez - who has started just six league games this season - is though to have expressed a desire to seek an early end to his loan spell, something which the club were happy to agree to.
