Having been limited to just 257 minutes of football this season, RB Leipzig youngster Hugo Novoa could head out on loan in January, Bild reports.

"We have to sit down together," new RB Leipzig sporting director Max Eberl told the German tabloid.

"He needs playing time, that's clear," added Eberl.

The 19-year-old Spaniard joined Leipzig's youth academy from Deportivo La Coruna back in 2019.

He has made a total of 23 appearances for the German Bundesliga club, scoring two goals.
