Anfield secure deal to bring Craven Cottage man to resolve full back issues.
Fulham defender Paul Konchesky is on the verge of a move to Liverpool after being spotted at Anfield today.
Sky Sports 1 showed the Englishman on Merseyside ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion.
Reds manager Roy Hodgson is keen on signing a left-back, and appears to have returned to his old club to bring in a familiar face.
Previous reports have put the transfer fee for the 29-year-old at £4 million, with Mexican international Carlos Salcido signed from PSV Eindhoven to fill the vacant left-back position. (Goal.com)
By all accounts this deal is done and the presence of the Fulham full back at Anfield is evidence that Mark Hughes has agreed a deal to allow the defender leave for Merseyside for a fee of around £4m, which is a pretty good deal for the west London side as the 29 year old would have been available on a free next summer.
Hodgson has been desperate to clinch the signing of a new left back with Emiliano Insua still likely to leave the club and Fabio Aurelio out with injury. The experienced Konchesky will give Liverpool an experienced attack minded left back option to balance the similar style Glen Johnson on the right.
