Manchester City will look to arrange a loan move for misfit striker Felipe Caicedo.

The Ecuador international has struggled badly since arriving at Eastlands last January and seemed set to relaunch his career in Germany with Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin but the deal collapsed as Hertha instead moved for Liverpool's out-of-favour Ukrainian Andrei Voronin.

"We may look at a loan situation for Felipe again," confirmed boss Mark Hughes.

Caicedo will be joined by Nery Castillo, who also failed to secure a deal elsewhere after enduring a miserable six months in the north-west following his arrival on a year's loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

"It is disappointing for both of them. We thought they were good opportunities but in the end it wasn't to be," added Hughes.
