At the start of the season when Brendan Rodgers offered Suso the choice of staying at the club and fighting for his place or taking up a loan move to La Liga, the Spaniard opted for the latter.
It was an opportunity to go home, but as he would later admit, it was also a chance to play regular first team football, a move necessary for his football development.
The 20-year-old midfielder joined Deportiva Almeria, and although the club has been struggling, he has proven that he made the right decision.
Chances in Liverpool's midfield would have been few and far between. With Almeria, he has so far played 16 games, scored two goals and made five assists. At one point only Koke, Cesc Fabregas and Neymar had more assists with seven.
His goals have come against Levante and Celta Vigo and in late October he was among the top five dribblers in the Spanish top flight with Granada's Brahimi and Messi the only players in front of him.
Suso, who captained Spain to the under-19 European Championships in 2012, has been with Liverpool since he was 16.
He signed his first contract a year later, but it was last year that he really came to prominence when Rodgers gave him several first team opportunities.
He made his first senior appearance in an away game against Young Boys in a Europa League tie and later turned out against Manchester United in a Premier League home debut.
Over the Christmas season, while La Liga was on a break, Suso returned to Merseyside on the invitation of Rogers.
He told Liverpoolfc.com that he was relishing his time playing against some of the best players in the world.
He also said he was eager to return to the club next season and show what he had learned in Spain.
Suso is one of eight Liverpool players who are currently on loan. Others who have done well playing away include Oussama Assaidi, Fabio Borini and Andre Wisdom.
Assaidi has been with Stoke since the start of the season, making 16 appearances and scoring four goals. The highlight of his time with the potters so far was an injury time winner against Chelsea in the League.
Borini has also been making a name for himself at cellar dwellers Sunderland. Two of his three goals so far have helped the Black Cats to the semi-final of the League Cup.
Borini capped a very good performance recently by scoring a penalty against Manchester United in the first leg of the semi-final. Another good outing at Old Trafford could see him off to Wembley.
Despite only playing three times for Derby County since making the move in October, Andre Wisdom has been described by manager Steve McClaren as a tremendous addition.
