According to The News January could see Lauren return to Spain when the New Year sales open.

His former club Mallorca – along with Real Betis – are reportedly interested in the right back who has been plagued by injury since he signed from Arsenal last January and he now finds it hard to command even a squad place.

I really like Lauren but with Glen Johnson the preferred right back – and he has been very impressive since his return, impressive enough for me to write an article on the mater, which I will share soon – and Lauren looking far from impressive in a right midfield role he could be a sacrificial lamb, with Harry Redknapp admitting there might be one or two.

To be honest I would love to keep the squad fully intact, just adding the missing pieces of the jigsaw in January but if sacrifices had to be made then ‘Ralph’ would be one that I would part with if it meant keeping others.
