The Hammers are though to be funding 75% of this £30,000 per week wages while on loan.

West Ham signed the 33-year-old experienced Spanish goalkeeper Roberto on a free transfer in May last year with his two year contract starting at the beginning of July.

With limited options available to the keeper for a return the club under David Moyes the club will hoping a successful spell in Spain to allow a permanent move or an extended loan for next season.

The departure of Roberto frees up a valuable foreign position in the Hammers squad.
