Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo will not be granted permission to leave the club on loan in the January window, according to a report.

Junior Firpo is reportedly set to remain at Barcelona for the second half of the season despite interest from elsewhere.

The 24-year-old has been restricted to just nine appearances in all competitions this season, two of those being starts.

Granada are said to have lodged a loan request for the left-back, aware of Barca's need to shred their wage bill.

However, Spanish outlet Marca claims that the Catalans do not want to risk leaving Jordi Alba without a back-up and will therefore keep hold of the ex-Spain Under-21s international.

Riqui Puig and Martin Braithwaite have also been tipped with a January exit, but the same report indicates that more outgoing activity is unlikely at Camp Nou this month.
